    Hi there 

    Lots of people are waiting longer than the 8 weeks quoted due to backlogs just depends on workload of the decision maker

    That's just a guide because there are no timescales.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Timescales have only ever been a guide. Backlogs are just part of the reason decision's can be delayed.

    Should have a decision within 8 weeks is not the same as will have a decision within 8 weeks.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    That's why the text says As a guide you should hear from us within 8 weeks. Because it isn't set in stone

    Everyone's waiting times vary, depending on backlog in the aera you live. Waiting several weeks for a decision means nothing other than you've been waiting several weeks. There's nothing else you can but wait.
