    Hello @lucy71 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    In response to your question can take I believe six to eight weeks.  To process.

    Hi @lucy71 and a very warm welcome to the community! Thank you for coming to us regarding your PIP application, we understand this can be an extremely stressful time for people! On average it takes 6-8 weeks to hear back, so I hope you are not waiting much longer! You may find the PIP board on the community to be a useful tool as it has things all to do with PIP and the process. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help! :)
