    The assessment process isn't there for them to write what you said word for word. It's for them to gather more evidence to support your claim. They then write the report which is their opinion based on everything you wrote in the form, any extra evidence you sent and what you said during the assessment.
    Have you added up any possible recommended scores in the report?
    Decision timescales are 2-12 weeks once the report was returned to DWP. Once the decision is made if you're not happy you can challenge that by requesting the Mandatory Reconsideration. (MR)
    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.

    The assessor doesn’t score you any points, they make recommendations only.
