Report a change of health and fit note

berry61 Community member Posts: 56 Connected
Hello everyone,
Our UC is currently being processed after moving from WTC. We get the result on the 28th Feb. I currently work part time as does my wife but I am due to have an operation on the 16th March and will be off work for several months. I understand that I have to report the change on my journal but how do I send them a copy of the fit note, do I just take a photo and send it in or do I have to scan it (pdf)  and send that.
Thanks for any help

    Usually they will ask you to provide the details on the fit note. If they want to see a copy of it they will ask you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
