    @Appolloesque, hello do you have insider knowledge that the staff at DWP are instructed, told to delay hinder benefits claimants to deter other from claiming so to allow others cheat the system by making false statements and claim.. There is a reason for delays but not for the reasons you seem or feel is the case in your situation. No to benefit claims are the same, similar but not identical to just rubber stamp them as ok. Unfortunately in NI you can’t request a copy of your assessment report till after your award notification letter has been sent, now that’s odd and unfair.

    The timescale you were told is just a guide. Backlogs is just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. There's no timescales for decisions i'm afraid. Hopefully not too much longer.

    @Apolloesque please copy and paste the links to the threads in which i have given incorrect advice? I'm certainly no expert but my benefit knowledge is good because of years of research and personal experience.

    I have given advice to thousands of people here on scope on the forum and through private messages when others have messaged me and have never knowingly given incorrect or bad advice.

    I'm sorry you feel let down but if you've come here looking for that "expert" advice then you have come to the wrong place. Most people that post here give advice from their own personal experiences.
