    I don't think you have a problem, I had assessment 13th and I'm like you had text to say have all they need but heard nothing since, it can take up to 8 weeks so don't worry.

      In my case with the loss of my DLA and too old to claim PIP our household income went down by the equivalent of £300 a week!!

      Well les that's a household income of £1200 every 4 weeks

      My income is £600 a mth + £100 a mth my husband gets from

      DLA he's 64 doesnt get pension yet n I am 57 n not getting

      Pension and in the support group for ESA,, £700 a mth is equal

      To £175 a week to eat, pay bills get to therapy not a lot really,,

      Some people on the dole get more like I've said it causes exessive

      Worry,, Not Knowing

      Yes it's the bottom line that matters. Our net income (2xState Pensions) and a few odds and ends now leaves us with a minus figure!! The £300 loss amounted to approx 60% of our income that was. We are left with approx £800 every 4 weeks. Out of that the mortgage is £261 every 4 weeks and Council Tax of £115 every 4 weeks. What is left over doesn't cover all of the bills or food.
