    Hi david

    It took 8 weeks to hear about my award and only because I rang or it would have been 9, but I got my assessment report 3 weeks after the assessment so that put my mind at rest a bit.

    good luck with it

      That's very interesting. Did the DWP/assessor tell you that you must accompany your wife to the assessment?

      Never heard of it before.

      I have certainly heard of many excuses being given as to why someone that you brought with you cannot go into the assessment with you - room too small, not enough chairs etc.

      And regularly hear that the assessor tells the person that you take into the assessment room that they are not allowed to take any part or answer for you.

      Strange and a new one on me.

      Yes it clearly states on my wife's letter which is addressed to me as I am her appointee and she is very unwell and unable to deal with anything I do all her care and our finances etc ..states it can not go ahead if I am not there .

      Ah I see, you are her appointee as authorised by the DWP.

      That does then make a difference I suppose.

      With you saying that, I have never given it a second thought to take my wife in with me or be there during an assessment. She has always sat in the waiting room or went round to our daughter when they came to assess me at home.
