    Hi @lucy85 the waiting time for a decision can vary due to the backlog in your area.

    Yes that the average time to get an award letter, but you can phone the DWP and request a copy of your acessment report which takes about 14 days to arrive once requested, on receiving it you can work out what your award may, will be, but you still have to wait for the official award notification letter.
