Hi all just a update received text from dwp today got straight on phone and rung them. After 1hr 10mins lady answered I then asked for copy of my report she then said have you had your decision I said no but still want a copy now please she we don't send reports out before a decision made and case managers don't make a decision on the report lol I stopped her n said ive been here before I insist im wanting the report sending now she then got the report off and sent it today my advice to anyone ringing for a report you are intitled to get this and must insist and dont be fobbed off ? next week I will be phoning dwp on uc report and again will insist ?

    Just so that you're aware when you request the report for your work capability assessment they may not agree to send it until the decision is made. This does happen a lot when claiming UC. All you can do is request it and see what they say.
