i received the assessor s report.  She said she had done a musculoskeletal assessment but I think she must have someone else s in my report!

Also she advises review in 1 and s half years. She must think there will be a miracle and my permanent disabilities will disappear. 

She he spent most of the time asking me about my house and my job nothing about my health. 

How is long do I have to wait for the pip decision

    Hi @cat1932 Unfortunately there is not a specific waiting time to receive a benefits decision as it depends on/if there is a backlog of claims in your area.

    All claims need to be reviewed at some point, this is a standard procedure. Although the assessor told you when you would be due a review, please do not rely on this and you must wait until you receive your decision letter.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions :)
