    Hi,

    I always find those automatically generated letters very annoying because it could still be weeks, depending on backlog. Hopefully not too long.

    Requesting a copy of the assessment report, if you live in the UK will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be. Of course you'll still have to wait for the decision.

    If you have your assessment report then you must have an idea or indecation of what your award may should be. Nobody likes waiting be it for a meal eating out or hospital appointments but have your results al be it not official you can rest easy now or start preparing your Mr if required.

    Just want to check, do you claim any other benefits like Income Related ESA/JSA or Income Support? If so, do you live alone or classed as living alone? If you do then you can claim the severe disability premium but if someone claims Carers allowance for looking after you then you won't be able to claim it. https://www.entitledto.co.uk/help/severe-disability-premium

    Age makes no difference. If you answer my questions in my previous comment i'll be able to give you more advice.

    Unfortunately, because you claim UC then the SDP is not payable.
