Quick outcome after assessment
My son has been on UC since December 2018. I am his appointee. I’ve been submitting fit notes for him since the beginning of his claim and have had up date phone calls with his work coach every 2 to 3 months. The work coaches have been very supportive and switched off the commitments at the start of his claim. In December I received a UC50 form which I filled in and sent back. I took him for an assessment just over a week ago and expected to wait a long time for the results. This morning I got a text to check his journal. There is a letter on there saying he has been found to have limited capability for work and work related activity. I was told by the work coach during one of our calls last year that if my son was put in one of the limited capability for work groups I wouldn’t have to send in fit notes. Is this correct? His current fit note only has 10 days left on it so I want to make sure I have understood that correctly.
