I've sent my renewal form back, but award ends in June. Will they make a decision before claim ends?

Hello all..I received a letter saying that I must full out the renewal form so I did and sent it back but my reward ends in June next year...what happens from now from when they look at it will they make a decision before my claim ends as I was told it only takes 7wewks for the case manager to look at it what will lead up to Xmas

    Most people have assessments, even for reviews, so you should expect one of those. Paper based assessments are rare but they do happen.
    Any new decision that's made will overrule your current award. The 7 weeks you were told is extremely optimistic, you could be looking at quite a few months.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

     You will most likely need to have a assessment first and waiting time for those is very long 

    After the assessment  it can still take up to 12 weeks or more for a decision 

    Once it is all complete the new decision will take effect and your old award will end 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    It would either be telephone or face to face. I'd advise you to prepare for either because this way it won't be too much of a shock if you receive an appointment in the post.
