Do you always get a text?

Reading through posts on here it seems as though most people have had a text within 48 hours of assessment to say they have received the report. I had my assessment a week ago and haven’t had this text yet. Is it possible that they have received it but not sent a text?

    You don't always get a text, on the other hand they may not have received the report yet.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Good morning, I received a text on Monday morning saying” you’ve asked us to look at our decision again, and we have all the information we need,we’ll be in touch within 12 weeks.”

    This is for the MR, so it’s different to the OP who’s recently just had their assessment.
    OP, sometimes reports are chosen for audit. If this happens it delays the report being returned to DWP. It’s nothing for you to worry about if it has, it just means they are checking the assessor did their job correctly.
    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.
