Long wait for PIP in Wales?

edited October 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I had my face to face assessment for PIP in March 2019 and am still waiting for the result.  I'm in Wales.  Has anyone else had to wait this long

    That does seem rather a long time as we are now in October. I'd advise you to ring DWP/PIP and ask what's happening, even though there's no timescales for decisions it shouldn't take that long.

    Is this a first claim or a PIP review or a transfer from DLA?

    Hi Cloe,  Thanks for replying so promptly.  It was actually ESA not PIP and I did ring in the end and was told that they'd sent a letter in April saying there's no change which was a great relief .  However  o such letter was received so i think a bit of a '**** up' on their part.  Thank you also for encouraging me to ring them.
