    Unlike ESA it is possible to be refused without a face to face assessment but it's rarely happens. The letter you received is just a standard letter they send everyone once they have all the information but there's still no time scales. It could still be anything from 2-8 weeks.

    You can ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, if you live in the UK. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    Hopefully you're not waiting too long. Good luck.

      It can definitely take much longer than that for a decision. Backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. There's really no timescales to any decision. Some wait a couple of weeks while others wait a couple of months.

      Hopefully not too long for you.
