Applying for attendance allowance

For information and discussion about benefits
HI,
My wife filled out the forms to apply for attendance allowance some 8 weeks ago. She hasn't had any acknowledgement or any correspondence since then. Is this usual? It just seems a long time to wait for
a ruling.
I was wondering if anyone has waited such a long time.
Thank you for any advice or replies.
Hi Ron, that doesn't sound too long, there's a lot of information to get through. However if you want you could ring up and ask how much longer it will be. If granted, it will be backdated to the date of the application.
Any forms I send to DWP departments/councils etc, I always phone approx 7-10 working days later to make sure they have been received.

Ron you should check for if they received it or not, there are procedures to fulfill. Good Luck!!
