DWP UC letters via journal

Recommended Posts

Hi so I log in for mum every day to the online uc account and check it all including the journal.  They used the journal to show a letter re a new uc50 on way, the entry was a few days before the form arrived, so she had a warning and not just the form fetching up on the mat.  I have or she does, 4 weeks to complete and return it, I am going to do a bit each day with her, write most of it for her probably, I have sectioned it out to do in parts for that reason.  I have no idea how she would now do this without help, not many questions on it either, so I or we have more answers to less questions if that makes sense, I am studying it and will get all the necessary things down on the how it all affects her daily, I feel for anyone who has to do this on their own, with backlog of appointments with advisors etc.  It will probably take even me best part of 3 weeks to do it with her.  But the uc letter in journal did give me advance warning to prepare her for its arrival.

If this is to review current Limited capability for work, perhaps it might be worth your Mum asking her Doctors for their current assessment in writing. Explain that DWP/UC assessment will be due at some point shortly and assessment company may contact them for up to date information.

 

Depending on health conditions, if enough information is provided on paper, the assessment company may decide not to carry out face to face assessment. So it is worth spending time completing the form with as much accurate detail as possible.


We could do with some help from you.

Hi unclebulgaria67,  yes this is a review,  she doesn't really see the GP much as such, its only med reviews and if she is unwell apart from the diagnosed illnesses, she sees nurses for the diabetes checks etc, there is nothing new they can offer her so its a matter of managing and getting through the best she can, which is where I come in as her carer.  She had 12 months cbt for bipolar back in 2009, there are no new things added to cbt so there is nothing they can teach her there, her fibromyalgia is treated with pain relief, there is no nhs physical treatment as only a specialised massage is thought to help but the relief is short lived so the nhs don't provide it (understandably) there is no cure for the condition and we have tried everything.  I will just do my usual best and be there for any assessment which I will request is recorded and hope for the best. Thank you for replying.
