    Hi and welcome to the community 

    The report is usually returned same day or next day so nothing to worry about 

    You can request a copy but some people find it cause more anxiety as it isn't the decision and they may not go with the report though in most cases they will

    Hi @holly83 - & welcome to the community. I hope your assessment went well. As Jane says, sometimes it's better to just wait for your decision letter. Kindly let us know how you get on, thank you. :)

    I've been told ifntjey hold on to it it's because they audit it. If its returned quickly its not audited. Also now they have it I can request a copy. But think that will cause more stress and I've been through it last year this is just a change of cirts. Last year they took 4 weeks to return the report to dwp. And I received 0 for everything. I took it all the way to tribunal and got higher care lower mob I've reapplied to get.full for both as that is what I should be on.will post soon as I know

    Thank you for your reply @holly83 - hopefully you will be more successful this year. :) Meanwhile, do have a look around the forum & join in with any discussions of interest. The virtual 'Coffee lounge' is often a good place to start.
