    You can call DWP - PIP line, they should be able to help, you can also ask for a copy of your report.

    Once the DWP have your report you should hear something within 6 weeks, at least that's what the text they sent me said (it took Capita 3 weeks to send my report to the DWP and they only sent it when the DWP requested it) .

    Hi,

    Once the assessment takes place it can be anything between 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer for a decision to made. Backlogs is just part of the reason a decision can be delayed.
