    [email protected]   Pleased to meet you. Welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    I am one of the team of community champions.  We guide, advise and help new members who join.

    Understand you always  should inform DWP of any changes that effect your claim.

    Photocopy any new evidence. Send it with a covering letter. Your NI number and name on each sheet.

    They will inform you.  Could be a while. Depends on backlogs.  Usually eight weeks or longer.

    Hope that helps you.

    Please ask if we can help with anything further.

    Some one will know from our team or a member of our community.

    Please take care.

    Hi,

    It depends on backlog in your area. A diagnosis makes no difference to your current claim because it's not about a diagnosis. Telling DWP about the new diagnosis, could start your work capability assessment process off again and you'll be sent more forms.
