    Impossible to even begin to answer your question without knowing more information. Which benefit? what stage of the claim are you at?
    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.

    Hello there and welcome to the community @response123 and thanks for your question.

    If this is about PIP, then I'm afraid there's not a set of data on this that's easily findable. I do know there are quite large backlogs at the DWP that mean people are facing waiting times that can be longer than 8 weeks. 

    Are you applying for anything at the moment? :)
