    HI,

    Face to face assessments are still suspended and telephone assessments have replaced them. With the WCA if a telephone assessment is needed and they still can't get enough of information through this then your file will be returned to the pile and you'll need to wait for face to face assessments to start back up again.

    There's no timescales for any decision or for how long the process takes. You do need to make sure the form is returned to them by the date stated in the letter.

    Good luck.
