Does anyone know how long after having the pip assessment is it currently taking to receive an answer? From when I started my claim it’s been 18 weeks so far

    To be honest waiting 18 weeks so far is no time at all compared to some members on here.

    I had my assessment on Wed 3rd Nov, Not too sure if I should be concerned as I was only on the phone 30 mins and the DWP received my report on the same day as I got a Text, I’m a 30 year old with Adult Autism, I sent The Diagnosis as part of my Evidence, Just a waiting game now.

    The length of time the assessment took doesn't mean anything, it's normal for them to last anything from 20-90 minutes. The report being returned the same day is also normal because once it's writen there's no reason to keep hold of it.
    PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors.
