UC 8 months 2 weeks ago #243821


With this sites support I was able to complete my PIP and UC50 form. They were both renewals.

I was awarded the higher rate of PIP for 3 years, my brown envelope arrived 3/4 weeks ago.

I am still very anxiously waiting for a decision from UC, there has been word at all despite the deadlines being the same.

Does anyone know how long they take to make a decision? It’s been 11 weeks since the forms were submitted.

Hi Anna

Congratulations on your PIP - that's great.

I'm afraid I can't give you any useful answer on Universal Credit as the decision times are varying so much. The only thing you can do is to ring and ask where they are with your claim. Some people have had an answer in 6 - 8 weeks and some considerably longer.
