LCWRA fit notes?

mt123mt123 Member Posts: 3 Listener
recently awarded lcwra, am I still required to submit fit notes? as on my journal on to do list it says declare a new fit note although my note doesn't run out till December. I thought you no longer needed to send them in once this decision was made? don't want to get sanctioned by not sending one just incase. unless they have made a mistake

    Are you sure you’ve had the decision and was it put into your journal? If it was then no you don’t need anymore for notes. If the decision wasn’t put into your journal then you’ll need to continue to send them until it is.

    Hello @mt123. The request for fit notes needs to be turned off manually by your case manager or work coach. If it's still asking for them (and you've definitely received an award letter), you need to make them aware and request they turn this off.
