How long after UC50 form do you get a response

nddlbnddlb Member Posts: 5 Listener
Hi, I sent in my UC 50 form in 2 weeks ago and I'm just wondering how long it takes once the form is sent in?

I've been on sick notes since February and recently received the enhanced rate of daily living P.I.P if that makes any difference

    Pip makes no difference to your uc50 claim they ars different benefits with different criteria 

    You may find you are waiting a while now for an assessment could be few months depends on backlog in your area

    Thank you both for replying!

    I guess I'm just anxious and impatient about it all because I have no idea what the process is for it

    Once they recieve the form they 2ill then send it yo assessment company. They will then arrange an assessment with you most are being done on the phone 

    The assessor then sends a report to your decision maker who makes a decision based 9n assessment and all other evidence 

    You will then be informed of outcome which could be as below 

    Fit for work-you will be required to look for work 

    Lcw -limited capability for work,  you will need to attend meetings and courses and prepare to look for work 

    Lcwra limited capability for work and work related activity . You have no work commitments no longer have a work coach and will get the additional payment £341 per month after 3 month waiting period from reporting your condition 

    Hope this helps
