    Hi @Olliedogzzzz when you say reply have you applied and waiting for a decision? have you been assessed and waiting a decision?

    hello and welcome, if you are waiting for an appointment for an assessment then 6 to 8 weeks is normal as we come out of lockdown face to face assessments may resume. If you have had your assessment then a couple of months wait is the normal waiting time, but you can request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can work out what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the award notification letter.
