    It can be a waiting game at the best of times @tara2019 but of course things are even worse as things are now, have you spoke to them recently about your claim? best time to call is as soon as they open before they get too busy.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Unfortunately, there's really no time scales. Hopefully you'll hear something soon.
