Think I've made a small mistake!

So Ive had my phone assessment etc, 
And I have a full 34 page needs assessment from disability at university that I wanted to send in (but due to covid nowhere to print it) 
Anyways, I've managed to print a copy and DWP gave me an address to send it in, said they wouldng make a decision until they had this extra evidence (which is great!) 
However, I realised after posting I've only posted the needs assessment and not wrote a note inside the envelope or anything explaining why I've sent this etc and to confirm who I am!

Will they automatically know its my report? Or will I have to send it all in again with a letter etc!?

Also, they now have my report from the assessor, at what point can I request a copy? Is it before theyve made a decsion or after?

Thanks again guys!

    Hi how are you today? You can request a copy around 7 days after its been done, you need to ask for a PA4, anything you send should always have your full name and national insurance number on, if they have done the assessment without the university report then I would wait and see what the award is, if its not what you expected then you could use the uni report as part of your MR.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Do you mean you didn't put your name an NI number on what you sent? If you didn't then they won't know who it's from, unless it has your address on it and then they maybe able to identify you from that.

    Hi @Welliboots93

    Oops, that is the kind of thing I would do too! If in doubt you could call the PIP helpline on 0800 121 4433.

    I hope you get on okay going forwards, keep us in the loop!
