Is 16 wks too long to obtain an assessment after initial application for reassessment. Could this assessment be done without claimant being present.

    Hi,

    There's no timescales for assessments or decisions. The claimant will need to be at the face to face assessment otherwise it can't be completed.
    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.

    Hi @Jezza59 and a warm welcome to the community. 
    It sounds like you've been waiting for quite a while for reassessment. I know it can be really stressful that they don't have reliable timescales for this process. Did you request a paper-based assessment?
