working tax credits - chasing up

I've applied for working tax credits... but how long do/should I wait after the initial approach? It must be getting on for a fortnight now? And do I have to go through the bill-busting hassle of a long on-hold call their hotline to chase things up - or is there another way...

this is from the initial approach. they've not sent me any forms at all or anything yet.

    According to "Gothic Sterling", I should wait 4 weeks from initial approach...
