    HI and welcome,

    Yes, a face to face assessment is not needed in this case and they've done a paper based assessment. You can ring DWP to ask for a copy of the assessment report because it sounds like the report has also been returned to DWP now. Once you receive this you'll have some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    There's no timescales for decisions but it can be anything from 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer.
