Hi all, just want to ask a few questions about my pip application, I have filled in all necessary paperwork, and had my phone call from a medical expert asking me questions about my health situation. 
Can anyone tell me how long after this that I will get a an answer if I'm going to get it? 
This was about 8 weeks ago and I still haven't heard anything.

    Welcome to the community @norawat1965 :) Thank you for joining us!

    Waiting times can vary quite a bit, but some people do end up waiting for up to around 12 weeks unfortunately, as janer1965 has said. 

    I hope that you're not waiting too much longer. Please do keep us updated.
