Hello Hearty,

Well done :D

Forewarned is forearmed.

First time I applied it took 22 months for the final decision to be made which went in my favour. Three years later I was obliged to reapply. The 2nd time was about 19 months, it went in my favour and I was granted it for 5 years. I've since moved country and I'm trying to get similar support - currently 21 months without a decision. I've been to a tribunal, had a medical (Dr), another medical (psychiatrist) and I received news in the post last month there will be another tribunal.

I hope your experience will be a lot easier and straightforward. I have no idea what grounds you are asking it on but if I were you, I'd expect to be refused and be prepared for the appeal process. Personally I think they make it so difficult deliberate so that you just don't bother but if you feel you qualify then insist.

Best of luck,
Peace
