    Welcome to the community @sadie65 :) 

    Firstly, just you let you know, I've deleted your duplicate post, and moved this one into our PIP category.

    As Janer1967 has said, waiting times can unfortunately be quite long at the moment. They vary, so it's difficult for us to suggest when you might hear back. I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry about it too much as you wait. How are you feeling about it all?

    Many people are finding the long waits are causing them some anxiety @sadie65, so you're not alone in feeling that way. You shouldn't take anything from the long wait, in terms of it meaning anything good or bad. How confident are you feeling in your form?

    Until such time as a new assessment is completed and a revised decision made your existing award will continue so no need to get anxious.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
