    hi @kaishalewis and welcome to scope, it can take sometime for them to get it on their system, I think atm you have 3 months to return these forms anyway (?), 
    As to wether you will need an assessment non of can answer that, but it's a distinct possibility.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi there 

    Yes it can take a while for them to get onto the system mine took 3 weeks and that wasn't during pandemic 

    As above you currently get 3 months to return them so you don't have to worry 

    Most people do have an assessment and if can take a while before this happens 

    It is all a long process which is why they allow 6 months for reviews 

    A review is just like a new application and they look at all elements so yes some people do lose what they have but some get higher awards as well 

    Fingers crossed let us know how you get on
