    I'm sorry to hear this. Getting your local MP involved is an option. I had to do the exact same thing when i first claimed PIP. They made me wait almost 11 months for an assessment. This was 3 years ago so PIP hadn't long been out then. I contacted my local MP told him my story 10 days they called me for assessment. They then messed me around when i sent my application for off for Severe Disability Premium so again i contacted my MP. 2 days later i had a call from DWP who asked me a few questions relating to SDP. I was then told i'd be awarded it and a back pay of over £2,000 was in my bank 4 days later. I wouldn't have know about cantacting my MP if i hadn't have posted some questions on a different forum, where i was then adviced to do this. I'm so glad i did. Hope your husband gets a decision soon.

      You dont need to make an appointment. I did all mine online. There's a wedsite that allows you to contact your MP through that. That's how i did it. Your MP will then email you.
