    You don't need to send anything until you've been sent the UC50 form. Once you've received this, you need to send all your evidence with the form when you return it.

    Your work coach needs to refer you for a work capability assessment, once this is done you'll then be sent the UC50 form. You need to continue to send in the fit notes until a decision's been made on the work capability assessment and this could take some time. You need to keep all the evidence you have for when you receive the form, sending it now to the job centre won't help your claim.
