Hi everyone I’m an newbie here! I applied for pip on the 17th January for severe breathing impairment I’ve had my assessment done last Thursday and the following day on Friday at 8am I received a text message from the dwp saying they have received  my report and it can take up to 8 weeks for a decision! The assessor did say to me she would be supporting my claim don’t know if that means anything! I have requested yesterday for my assessment report to be sent out to me which they said they would do! So hopefully that will give me some understanding of any outcomes although I do understand it’s not the final decision! But the waiting about for a decision is utterly soul destroying! I don’t know if I’m pinnng my hopes up to much because the assessor said she will be supporting my claim! To be let down if you know what I mean!
