    Hi,

    It can take between 12-20 weeks for a decision on this because of the backlogs in a lot of areas. Lots of people are owed money yes but lots haven't been owed anything. Whether you're one of the ones that's owed money will depend on your circumstances between those dates. Hopefully not too much longer.
    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.
