    Hi 

    Unfortunately it can take a while for the assessment depends on backlog in your area.  Some wait weeks some months 

    Sorry this isnt probably what you want yo hear 

    It is normal that you start the review 6 months prior to award ending or 14 weeks for tribunal awards so it seems late that your forms were sent off in jan fir claim ending in feb

    hello, you could trying calling the DWP, I did and was informed my file had been sent to the assessment company who will contact me in the future. Your receive a letter informing you of the date and approximate time the assessor will call you and the number they will call you on.so if any information is incorrect you can inform the assessment company to update their details. The assessment takes about an hour sometimes longer.

    I dont think there would be any point it is your responsibility to chase it up the owness is on you really as it's your claim 

    Also if you are awarded again it will be backdated to when your other claim ended
