How long will the MR take?

I've sent my MR off yesterday. Just wondering if anyone has an idea as to how long it could take?
And will they contact me again and do another telephone assessment?

Thanks for any advice

    Hello @Del1149

    I wish you all the best with the MR, I am not sure as to how long it could take but there have been backlogs and delays so it might not be the quickest of turn arounds. 

    I've seen many users in the past say that somebody has called them to discuss the MR, but I'm uncertain if that is something they do in all cases or just for some.

    You will not need another assessment, although sometimes a decision maker may call to ask a few quick questions but this doesn't always happen.
    Timescales, anything up to 12 weeks, sometimes longer.

    Hi, I got my payment yesterday after waiting 12 weeks. I still don't have my award letter. I never received any additional phone calls. Hope that helps. Good luck with yours
