    I would say as soon after the assessment.

    But.

    Sometimes you could just make yourself worried about it without any need to.
    Do you need anymore stress?

    Wait until there is a decision before stressing about what might happen.

    A lot of threads here are about "what if" that never happens.
    I'm intelligent enough to know that I don't know everything.
    But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Ring the DWP and ask for a copy of the assessors report a couple of days after. You will be able to work out what you are likely to be awarded. This gives you time to pick the report to pieces if/when it is inaccurate. The decision will follow a couple of weeks later.

    That's a point. I could do with a couple of weeks not thinking about it, though I did get the impression the assessor either didn't understand or wasn't listening to how it was my disability affects me enough. I'm basically bedridden/ house-bound and unable to get around without injuring myself and I was asked how I socialised?
