    Don't be surprised if you're not waiting a while. Times vary accross the country depending on backlogs etc. Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to have a paper based decision. My review last year took 4 months ish and i had a paper based decision. Good luck.

    Oh god �� the wait for my pip was hurendous time I went through ... I was hoping this would be a few weeks of hell not months �� ...

    I live in the south west so I really don’t know ?

    My pip was a paper based decision and they have the same sort of evidence but then pip is completely different to esa so it’s anyones guess .

    Thanks for your help along the way poppy ... it’s been invaluable and a little comfort in such dire times ��

    nice to meet you

    Itís not going to be quick at all by all accounts .. I could be waiting till weíll after Xmas !!

    Just need to try and forget about it I think but thatís just not easy

    Really canít understand why they would put vulnerable people through this for so long obviously they have a back log but it seems pretty bad

    That would have been signed for by someone from the sorting office and not from DWP. It's not confirmed as being there until it's at the department it's meant to be but being signed for means it's arrived and that's all the proof you need if they say they haven't recieved it. Good luck!
