      Thats a long time,, but look at it this way any money they owe you will be backdated to the 14th week of your claim,,, when i had the assessment the lady told my husband that i would need to get sick notes until i heard back from DWP,, not worried about that as sick notes are for 2mths at a time she said once i heard back from them i dont need any more sick notes and would be contacted within 18mths/2years regarding another assessment but i dont know till i get letter what group,, wrag or support. Thanku for your reply i hope it all goes well for you on the 3rd,,, gentle hug,,, jayne xx
