    Hi,
    There are huge backlogs for decisions and you're not the only one waiting. We are still in a pandemic and many people working for DWP are still working from home, people are self isolating and all this causes more backlogs.
    Being with a case manager doesn't means it's in a pile along with many others. Going by other people here it can ve anything up to 12 weeks, sometimes longer.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Very true, My MR is with a Case manager as stated by a phone call earlier, I was told last week it should be this week I receive a letter.. But today they said I should hear something back the latest the middle of March, I guess it's a case of waiting and checking my bank account a couple of times a week.
