    HI,

    There's no timescales for any decision's. Backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. There's nothing more you can do but wait.

    I applied for my med extention license about 7 months ago, still nothing! Its not COVID's fault, DVLA just screwed up, i think ist just everyone's excuse for the poor performance. Its been on the news, DVLA just screwed millions of applications.

    That's DVLA so a totally different thing to IIDB, which is Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit.

    No data available beyond September 2020 but the reality in any case is how long is a piece of string. The time from claim to decision will vary absolutely with the complexity of your case.
