    HI,

    Backlogs are currently huge and other threads suggest anything from 2-12 weeks, sometimes longer.

    Welcome to the community @alexa77 :) 

    As poppy123456, waiting times can be quite long at the moment unfortunately. It's really hard to give an exact timeframe as waiting times vary quite a lot. 

    How are you feeling about your application?

    My claim start on 26.04.2021
    I had my assesment on 1.09.21
    On 15.09. They sand me letter what saying they have got all information what they need. And I rand there on 22.09.21 and they said decision was made. So I could hear something in short time. So I am pretty nervous now. 😬

    If you are successfully awarded then payment usually goes into your bank before you receive the decision letter. Payment takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank once it's sent. If a decision was made on 22nd if successful money should be in your bank either Monday or Tuesday next week.
    If you're not happy with the decision then you can request the Mandatory Reconsideration. (MR)
