    Backlogs in some areas for the work capability assessment are huge, especially if you need a face face assessment. Unfortunately, all you can do is wait. If an assessment is needed, they will contact you with a date and time.

    Welcome to the community @salih :) 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our universal credit category, and renamed it so that other members can find it more easily. 

    As poppy123456 has said, waiting times can vary so it's difficult to say exactly how long you'll have to wait. I hope you hear back soon. How did you find completing the form?
