    WHO KNOWS Robbie. The time-frames for making these decisions seem to range wildly from 3 -18 weeks+
    There just doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the madness . . .

    Unlike the PIP2 form, the AR1 form when sent back goes to a DWP decision maker first to see if they can make a decision without the need to send it on to ATOS. When (or if) the decision maker can't make a decision he will send it to ATOS for either a f2f or paper assessment. It is at this point you will receive the txt message you received.

    Well on Friday I got my copy of the ATOS assessor report.
    Very surprisingly, it is 95+% true to the home assessment from last December. Just waiting for the DM letter confirming it all (week 10 now)

    Have to go for assessment on the 6th of March now so no paper based assessment
