    HI,

    There's no timescales for how long the assessment process will take, it depends on backlog in your area. Face to face assessments are still suspended and they are mostly doing telephone assessments now.

    The work capability assessment is about the work you can do rather than the work you can't do. I don't know if your conditions are a good sign because i don't know how you're affected by them and am unable to give any advice on that.

    Hopefully you won't be waiting too much longer and you'll hear something soon.

    Great news on the PIP. Yes, it's disreagrded for 1 year. Although if it doesn't take your savings to more than £6,000 then it's not counted anyway.
