    Hi @Julia9092 Welcome on board 

    It can take several months for a PIP claim and with the pandemic and reduced staffing levels there are back logs

    If it is with a case manager it shoujldnt take too much longer when yours gets to the top of their pile it will be looked at 

    Did you request a copy of your assessment report as this will indicate what has been recommended and they usually not always go with the report

    Hi @Julia9092 welcome to scope, by case manager do you mean decision maker at the DWP? if so it can take between 6-8 weeks. Is it a new claim or review? if new then the award (assuming you get one) will be back dated.
