What reason would DWP not give you a copy of report?

Hi all, i had my assessment on the 15th, text the next morning, they've received it, if i call today this that too soon? Does it need to be the full 7 days after? If im refused, do they give you a reason as to why? Do i need to explain why I'd like a copy? Thanks for reading

    The same question was just asked on another thread. My reply was... Because they don't agree that it should be sent before the decision is made. It does cause some people even more anxiety especially if it's not what you're expecting to read.
    You can ring anytime after it's been returned to them. No, you don't need to explain why you want a copy, just ask for it to be sent.
