    It appears they want to check something before making a decision. You need to make every possible effort to take the call on Tuesday.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    There is no way to know.

    Remember that the assessor does not make a decision on your claim, they write a report which is sent to the DWP. A Decision Maker at the DWP makes the decision and sometimes they want to check something for themselves.
