    Hi how are you today? You can now phone them and ask for a copy of the assessors report, which will give you a good idea of what the award might be, once requested it should usually take only a few days to get to you.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Hi @Tomtom111. The wait for a decision is very stressful. Have you requested a copy of the assessor's report? It can give you an idea of what the assessor has recommended and may help for you to have something to focus on.

    Hi @Tomtom111 Welcome to the community, nice to have you on board.

    It is very frustrating waiting for a decision but 2 weeks isn't a long wait in current times, DWP are dealing with a huge increase in benefits claims and all this on reduced staff. I know this doesn't help you but unfortunately other than get your report as suggested you can only wait for the decision

    I heard in about three weeks your wait won't be too much longer fingers crossed for you..
