    @thedoc.hello if you live in the UK you can phone the DWP and request a copy of the assessment report and on receiving it you will be able to see what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the official notification letter from the DWP.

    I usually leave it about a week and then ring. They won't send a copy to you until they receive both copies back. It's DWP you need to ring.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
