    Why do you think that? The report is almost always issued on the same day.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    I don’t really know anything from them I just panic I had a major one today when I was in the assessment and I’ve never had to endure this process or anything like this and I find it all very daunting to be fair ??

    Here is a link to an online Article about " PIP waiting times after Assessment " you may find useful.


    It does look like for some people waiting times have increased due to a backlog. But you will receive a decision; like you say it is a waiting game.

    Hello hello to all of you waiting for your PIP award notification letter. Once you have had your assessment wait about 10 days then phone the DWP and request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can work out what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the official notification award notification letter. If the reports looks like the award expected is not what you think it should be, you now have several weeks to gain extra supporting information and evidence to lodge a Mandatory Reconsideration should you wish to. This can only be requested once you have received the official award notification letter.
