You should ask your attorney why he changed the date. We do that kind of thing all the time for various reasons, and I'm sure your attorney had a good one, but you should ask just so you know.
30-60 days is pretty standard. You did get all the usual clues that it will be awarded. I hope so for you. Just know that you are now waiting for two letters. The First will be a big, long letter from the judge titled, "Notice of Decision." After that, you get to wait another 30-60 days (Though they have been coming faster) for a "Notice of Award." This notice will tell you how much money you are getting and when. And yes, sometimes the check beats this letter..
Good luck to you!
