    You wouldn't think so but with such a back log they may need to to validation of your claim and bring it to a conclusion. You could always call them back using a different phone that way they can't keep you connected without your knowledge. If it's genuine you will have to state your ID details and they will ask you to confirm certain things but if you are not happy call DWP Monday and report it and get varication of such activities by DWP staff at weekends.
