Hi I'm getting stressed because I have sent my Uc health assessment form with all the information about my health and along with the support worker's letter which was written very short and didn't sent anything about my physical health I dnt know my mind was just everywhere I was so confused and couldn't send any other supporting letters 
Is it gonna effect my lcw or lcwra ? Now I'm so restless just thinking about these letters every time 
I made PIP claim with pip I have sent everything but not with Uc I'm so upset:-(

    Hello @skhan95

    Great to see you here, thanks for posting :) 

    We can't say whether the letter from your support worker will impact the claim negatively or not, but if you've included plenty of detail in your assessment form then I would hope not. The letter should act more as an additional piece of evidence. 

    If it concerns you, could you not send another version of the letter that explains everything that you want it to?

    How can I do that? 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi there 

    You can still send in the additional evidence 

    Just put covering letter with it remember to put your ni number and name on every sheet of paper 

    Also keep copies for yourself 
  • calcotticalcotti Member Posts: 2,173 Pioneering
    Keep the originals, send copies.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Where I can find the address for sending post ? I'm really sorry I always get confuse 
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    And it's been 20 days I have sent the form I hope they haven't made their decision yet as it's too early? Am I right ?
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    You will have an assessment first before they make a decision and there ars huge delays 

    Does it not give a return address on your letter or form presuming you have kept a copy 

    I don't know the address but will see if I can find it or maybe other members may know 

    @Ross_Scope do you know the address for uc50 evidence to go to 
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I think  I can find the address in Uc journal they have text me before regarding a uc50 form 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    I canr find the address on the Internet all it said is to call them if you have lost the pre paid envelope 

    Your journal may be worth trying

    @janer1967 says they now work weekends. 

    I was unable to find an address online that I was confident about, so calling is probably the best thing to do.

  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I'm calling them now but it gives me stress and anxiety calling them they never help my coach worker never respond to anything but may be I'll get in touch with nice person today 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Maybe if you get the address could you let us have it as well please so we can help other members 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    It us hard to get response from work coach when you put a message in your journal when if ask type of query mark it payment or service issue as these then go to actual dwp staff and not the call centre 

    If you are not happy with your work coach you can request a new one 

    Don't get stressed about call just say you want to send further evidence and need to know where to send it 
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I spoke to the lady she said dnt worry if they need any documents they will contact you through journal or by post 
    That's all she said :-(
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Not really the right answer 

    The onus is on you ti provide evidence not them

    What was you going to send as it needs to be relevant anyway

    That's not an answer to the question you need answered. Your question is "I want to send in some more medical evidence - where should i send it?".

  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I couldn't use proper words I said I need to send more documents 
    Actually i should say I want to send medical evidence 
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I will call them again in the morning tomorrow definitely and will let you know 
    Thanks once again for being so helpful  :)
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    I have written everything in the form and along with that I sent a letter from support worker but I couldn't send any physical health evidence now I'm thinking why I did not sent it this feeling of not sending making me soooooo stressful 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Try not to worry physical medical evidence is only relevant if it details how your condition would affect you in a work capacity 

    If they don't detail this then they are not required 

    All I sent was my medication list and my certificate of sight impairment 

    The main thing is a well detailed form 
  • skhan95skhan95 Member Posts: 56 Listener
    Hi I found the address where I can send my evidence to the universal credit assessment team it was on the letter which they have sent me with the questionnaire form 
  • janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 11,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Great I did tell you to look at that but never mind you have it now
