      Thank u for your reply . Its so nerve racking waiting . Does it take as long for them to send a letter and decide if not been awarded. Im new to all this just the anxiety is so bad and to wait since aug to get to where i am now would be awful if wasnt successful.

      To be honest I have no idea as I was awarded both at enhanced rate, I suppose mine was quite straight forward as I can't walk, I think it all depends on the amount of backup paperwork you submit to backup your claim
