    Hi,

    As you've had the assessment then it maybe too late to send further evidence now. Post to DWP can take several working days to arrive at the correct department, which could mean a decision is made in the meantime.

    You can certainly try sending it but don't be surprised if it's not used, when making the decision. They rely heavily on the assessment report when making a decision too.

    For the correct address then you'll need to ring DWP to ask. At the same time, if you live in the UK you can ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. If you live in Northern Ireland you'll have to wait for the decision is made.
    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.
