    Hi,

    It will either be a paper based assessment, telephone call, video call or they will wait until the face to face assessments are back up and running again. All you can do is wait. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-update-benefit-reviews-and-reassessments-suspended

    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.

    That seems a long time. Did you check they receieved your application?

    I put in for pip on behalf of my son in january this year and a paper based assessment was done in march. He is a dla to pip transfer which might have a different time scale.

    If you have had a text to say they have your form, then you can rest easy and wait.

    If not, i would check they have actually received it.
