Hi, I helped a friend fill in her DLA to PIP Form a number of weeks back. We pushed hard and got a paper based assessment.

Anyway I’m wondering how long she should have to wait to get a decision. The DfC said 6-8 weeks, while information I’ve been reading online suggests 4-6 weeks, admittedly that’s across the water

I know that claimants here in the North are getting hammered at these assessments, see the Spotlight review sometime back

Can anyone say what the figures are like for those receiving paper based assessments and if Capita’s financial problems has had any affect on the assessments
