    How long a wait for assessment

    I wonder if someone can let me know what the average waiting time is to get f2f assessment. I got a letter from Capita three weeks ago to say they have received my form from dwp and will now look at it. I have read it could be up to 16 weeks, is this correct. My anxiety levels are sky high with this waiting.

    Mine was just about 2 months. Take this time to look up what to do for an MR. There is a lot of info online. Good luck

    Okay thanks. Hoping it won't be the 16 weeks.

    They signed for receipt of my docs and form on 25th jan i had f2f 20th march and got my pip decision letter on 18th april, goodluck with it i just went with the flow of things because until a decision is made you still carry on with the dla or if you are already on pip then with that so until you know the outcome of it all there's nothing you can do to change anything not worth making yourself more ill for
