New PIP claim

Hi I posted a message a few weeks ago, regarding Limited Capability.
I recently reduced my hours at work own to 12. I was assessed and deemed fit to work, even though I already do! 
I’ve handed in fit notes since September, I got  awarded PIP last week the standard living component only. Days after this I received a message in my journal saying they are staying with their decision. 
Job coach rang on Friday saying I may need to look into a new career. I can’t do the job I currently do which I’ve done until recently for well over 20 years. 
Any advice what I do next?

    If you’ve gone through the MR process then you can now proceed with Tribunal. 

    In your previous thread you said you reported changes to your health condition, which prompted them to refer
    you for another work capability assessment. Have you received the UC50 form for that yet? 
    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.

    Then as I advised on your other thread, any new decision made on this assessment will overrule the previous decision. 

    Are you proceeding to Tribunal for the current decision?

    I’m completely new to all of this, I thought the letter I received was it, their final decision. So I’m still awaiting to result from the form I filled in? Yes I’m quite happy to take it to a tribunal if needs be.

    What letter did you receive? If it was the MR decision letter then you can now take it to Tribunal. 

    The form you filled in was because you reported changes in your health condition, which prompted another assessment. I’m going by what you said in your previous thread.
