    It may be worth asking if you can take it to you local JobCentre for them to scan and forward to PIP.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi, could you tell me how long it took to update, as  I sent my marriage certificate last week so they could update their records into my married name, but I have a car waiting for me and can't collect it until they update my surname
