    Are you sure that you've been give a new award date? That seems rather quick. I remember you posted asking for advice because there was a problem with the first form they sent you. Didn't they stop your payments? This could be that they've started your payments, rather than a new award notice. Please do check. If it's a new award notice then you will have a new review date.

    You may not be able to get through to them right now because i've heard they have an IT crash at the moment.

    Yes, most people have an assessment, it's rare not to. I had a feeling that letter you received wasn't a new decision letter.

    Good luck. Dont forget a few days after the assessment you can ring DWP to ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. It's also useful to have if the Mandatory Reconsideration route is needed.

    So before my review my claim was due to end in December this year as it was only awarded for 2 years once I have been for this assessment and lets say I carry on getting it will I still have to go for another assessment in December (when my claim is ready to end so usually I would put anouer claim in so thry overlapped so there was no gaps in my money if that makes sense) or would they give me a new award date after this assessment it just doesnt make sense to go for one now and then one in November/December time aswell

    Tomorrow will be too early as it was only yesterday you had the assessment. I'd leave it till at least the end of the week. They won't send it out to you until they have received both copies back. Some will refuse to send it until after the decision is made, if this happens ring back and try again with the next person you speak to.

    There's no timescales to any decision. Some wait a couple of weeks and other wait 6 weeks or more. It depends on backlog in your area. You can ring anytime, if a decision is made they will tell you.
