    There's no timescales for decisions, backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. As the report has been returned to DWP your partner will be able to ring them to request a copy to be sent out. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    @kay2017, Hello and welcome a final decision can take over 8 weeks. But you can contact DWP and request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can workout what you're award may should be but you still have to wait for the official award confirmation letter.
