    @xxameeraxx, hello and welcome. Since it's only last week you had your assessment wait till the end of this week or next week and phone the DWP and request a copy of your assessment report then you can see what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the official notification letter. This will give you a heads up on your maybe award and if not to your liking or expectations then you have several weeks to collect extra evidence ready fo submitting an Mr but these seldom change the award and you are left to take your case to a tribunal hearing which has a 12 month and longer waiting time and is best if you attend in person.

    Hi and welcome

    I am sorry to hear what you have put up with.
    It is impossible to guess the outcome of an assessment, the demeanor of an assessor does not mean a good or bad result.
    As Wilko has advised, phone the DWP and ask for a copy of the report
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    If you live in the UK yes you can ring to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report. You'll still have to wait for a decision to made. Once you've got the decision if you're not happy then you have 1 month from that date to request the Mandatory Reconsideration and the report can be useful when request this.

    It's very difficult during the assessment when they ask you questions about things that have happened in your past. The reason they do this is so they can have a better understanding of how your conditions affect you.

    Hopefully not too long before a decision is made.

    It does, I'm going through something with the assessment I had, the report is full of discrepancies and contradictions, I won't go into it fully as I start ranting about it :/ but it has affected my mental and physical health sadly.

    Very few people claim benefits fraudulently. There are invisible conditions and you can't always tell that someone has a disability by just looking at them.... My daughter looks perfectly normal but she claims Enhanced rate of PIP for both parts. She has ASD, a learning disability and social anxiety disorder.

    @xxameeraxx Sorry to read this, it saddens me as I know what you are, and have been going through (in same boat) I think it's disgusting how they want you to talk all about the past of what happened to you.

    I remember writhing on all my PIP, ESA forms I will never discuss any of this stuff with complete strangers end of. I then just pointed them to speak with my mental health team and with all the other evidence I sent in I was left alone.

    God bless.

    That will just be a standard letter they send everyone. It doesn't really mean anything other than a decision will be made sometime in approximately 2-8 weeks depending on backlog.
