The letter advised that yes we are now in the system for a further determination as to whether we are eligible for processing. Bit long winded, but I guess they are checking the forms over again. It states that if you are not eligible then you will receive another letter stating why.
With regards to processing time, it states that on average it takes only 12 months to process!! Blimey, thats a lot quicker than when they changed from the previous system.
Hope the above helps, and you get you letter soon
