    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 rang yesterday and was told they have stopped giving estimates as there are just so many to get through. Ive been waiting since May.
