    Hi,

    You can send the sick note anytime but you just can't go back onto assessment rate until the Tribunal have accepted your appeal because you need the reference number. Quickest way to send the sick note is online here. https://www.gov.uk/send-fit-note

    Then you'll need to contact DWP Monday when they open. They will also receive a letter from HMCTS so they will know. How long it will take to start back payments, i have no idea.
