    Hi @Gemma9 - Welcome to the community. The timescales you're given are just a guideline unfortunately. What you can do however, is ring the DWP on 0800 121 4433 & ask for a copy of your assessment report. This will give you an idea as to what award you might receive. The DWP Decision Maker usually goes with the assessment report, but you would have to wait for the actual decision letter to be sure. :)

    Hi @Gemma9 and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I hope you find the above information which @chiareds has provided to be helpful and I hope it's not too long before you receive a decision from DWP.  Please let us know how you get on anyway.  All the best.  :smile:
