    Unfortunately, there's no timescales for decisions and with the MR they can take as long as they want to. My advice will be to give DWP a ring to chase it up, if you haven't already done that.

    Hi @dazz69, as @poppy123456 has said, there are no timescales for this. I hope you don't have to wait much longer!

    Hi @dazz69,

    unfortunately as @poppy123456 & @Chloe_Scope said above, there are no official time scales. All you can do is chase it up, as you have done already.
    13 weeks is slightly longer than I would expect so hopefully they will be in touch soon. It does depend on their backlog, which is usually large.
    Let us know when you hear from them. :)
