    It depends if your claim is considered a continuation or a new claim.The amount of time between singing off and on again is what counts(don't know off hand the details)

    I was in the same boat....if u have been working more than 6 months it will be a new claim and you should get an appointment within 2wks...If the time you signed off and signing back on again is less than 6 months it's a renewal claim and you should get an appointment within a week....a lot of the officers time is being taken up by non nationals coming in with interpreters to get pps numbers(I know an officer in my local office)...can take an hour to deal with each one and at times there are families of 4-5 coming in...hence the wait for an appointment
