I understand everywhere is different but after sending the uc50 how long is the wait for an appointment roughly ?

    Hello mine was about a month and was sent for health assessment which they informed me I was fit to do some sort of work if they don't put you in the support group they will be on your back the other groups are work related

    I sent it over a week ago not for me for me for my daughter. I know and the doctor and her work coach know she is not capiable at all to work any time soon so hopefully at the assesment they can see that.

    As the UC50 form was only sent a week ago then it will most likely be after Christmas now until she hears something. Most people have face to face assessments, so expect her to have this. Did she send evidence to support her claim? They very rarely contact anyone for this.
