PIP decision time after assessment

Hi Everyone, 

I wondered if anyone has any up to date timescales in regards to decisions after your assessment. I had my telephone appointment today, and they did state it could be anything up to 8 weeks, they've told me this before when I called too. However, I understand these can vary (and yes, I know they're impacted by workload of the decision maker) but I just thought I'd ask on here to get an idea of how long people have waited recently. 

I was on the phone for nearly 2 hours, god it was exhausting. 

My claim started in June, what a long process!! 

Any experience in this department is welcome :)
