    Are you referring to the work capability assessment review and you've returned your forms? If so then most people have assessments, which will either be by telephone, face to face or video call. There's no timescales.
    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.

    Hi there,

    No, just basic (annual) review, sending in documents to support current status. No forms.

    If you haven't received any forms i don't understand why you've sent documents. I believe because of the backlogs that all reviews are currently on hold.
    If you're in the Support Group then this is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise.
