I would expect a couple of weeks at most.

I had an email from ATOS 2 weeks ago saying they had made their decision (continue in support group) and informed the DWP but I just phoned the DWP (I passed their security questions for the first time !!! :laugh:) and they just said there is a backlog and there is nothing on their system and phone back in another couple of weeks. She also said that DWP will just go with the ATOS recommendation but I know that is not always the case. I just dread being put into the WRAG group and while appealing, having to try to do WFI's and wrag activity again. Its the waiting .. every morning for the post.

well decision letter finally came today - DWP did go with ATOS recommendation for the support group - thanks so much for everyone's support here and all the info provided! Couldn't have managed without it. :cheer:

timescales:-

9/1/2014 sent ESA form back to ATOS (received by ATOS 14/1/2014)
emailed ATOS 4/4/2014 - still to be reviewed
emailed ATOS 6/5/2014 - able to decide without f2f - rec. support group- papers sent to DWP
letter dated 21/5/2014 from DWP arrived on 27/5/2014 confirming

so just under 20 weeks total

2 quick questions:-

1) - The decision letter says Caerphilly Benefit Centre, Post Handling site B, Wolverhampton - do I send the subject access letter (for which you give a template for here- to request all the decision information) to this address? - normally I get things from Chippenham

2) will this information give me an idea of when I might be reassessed ie how long the award is for?

Thanks again for all your help.

Congratulations on the award.

Most DWP offices use a mail drop for any letters being sent to the them, so it is worth checking any recent letters you have had from Caerphilly to see which one they are using and use that one.

The ESA85A should contain a prognosis, this will indicate when you are likely to be re-assessed.
