    If you've recently claimed then it's anything up 10 months. If you've had your assessment then for a decision it's anything between 2-12 weeks sometimes longer.

    My timeline hope it helps 

    I sent my pip claim for back on 24th July. I got a text confirming they received it on the 16th August. I then didn't get a telephone assessment until 16th November it got cancelled on day and rearranged to the 20th. I had the assessment then the following Monday 22nd  I got a text saying dwp have received my written assessment should be in touch in 8 weeks. I then received a random call on the 3rd December from a dwp decision maker they asked me more information this really caught me off guard was unaware it was something they do. But the decision-maker said I should receive a decision in 1-2 weeks. I will update the timeline when I get more info.
