    Sometimes they ring to ask a few questions and from this they will see if they have enough of information to do a paper based assessment. If they have the report will be written and returned to DWP. From there a decision can take up to 12 weeks.
    If an assessment is still needed then your wife will be contacted on behalf of your daughter.
    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.
