When Should I Apply and How Long Will it Take For a Decision?

Legally reviewed by Brendan Garcia , Owner and Lead Attorney

You should apply as soon as you are no longer able to work because of your illness. There is no benefit to waiting or requirement that you wait. Expect a decision generally in three to six months, although it can take longer depending on the completeness of the work and medical history that is provided, and the level of investigation that is required in your individual case.
