    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there's no timescales for any decisions. All you can do is wait.
    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.

    Hello, since you have received your assessment report and you posted it looks good it’s a case as poppy123456 has posted you will have to wait for the all important award notification letter, with all the recent changes going Ona biweekly phone call to DWP for an update may ease your mind.
