ESA/PIP review time frame.

Hi guys,

I sent new medical evidence in to the DWP in March owing to my illnesses worsening, which initiated new forms for both benefits being sent.

I completed and returned the forms by mid April but have as yet have not heard anything at all.

Is anyone aware of the length of time I should expect for them to respond? I want to know if I am expected to undertake being assessed by Capita/ATOS as having this hanging over me is exacerbating my illnesses but I don’t want to call them and draw attention to myself if they have no intention if they haven’t requested assessments by Capita/ATOS owing to bad experiences with the DWP.
