    Hi @chevy790 sorry to hear you are still waiting, the waiting time for a decision can vary as it depends on or if there are a backlog of claims in your area. Hopefully you don't have to wait too much longer!

    no i wasnt aware you could do this until i actually recieved decision---------i will contact capita today and ask them can i have it-cab told me this morning they are having serious problems with pips people and complaints about rudeness when you ring help line-in my area they tell me it is normally maximun 6 weeks for decision although she knew of numerous ones that only took 3-4 weeks-----pips are not co operating with them either-----she rang on my behalf but was told they could only speak to claimant -she handed phone to me--sorry we cant help you at moment as computers are down-cab girl said this is a common ploy they are coming up with now-thanks for help

    you would need to contact DWP for a copy of the report not the assessors who are Capita in your area.

    Try & be kind to one another even if we may have different views.
