    Quite normal. It can take many months for a PIP claim to be processed. Have you had an assessment yet?
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Once the report is returned to DWP a decision can take 2-12 weeks.
    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.
