Client has been handing in sick notes, via UC online account for 2 months, requesting a UC50 from 28 days.
Client has taken the initiative and managed to get a copy of a UC50 from the local job centre. Think she managed to talk someone into printing one out.
A. Is this a problem to fill it in and send it? (It did not arrive in the post)
B. Where to post it to?
(Forms in the post provide the address to send it to)
Your help greatly appreciated.
Called CHDA this morning (Centre for Health and Disability Assessments) who informed me, she needs to be on the MSRS system - MSRS
medical services referral service. Before they can process a UC50 for the DWP (a referral from the DWP to CHDA through this system)
For what it’s worth, the address for Brighton is,
2 cherry orchard road
We’ve had a couple like this. With one of them the appointee put a note on the journal asking them to make the referral without further delay as it was way over the 29 days and they did what they call a Day 1 referral to CHDA. The appointee sent the UC50 with a covering letter to explain that and it worked.
It does seem to depend on whoever at UC picks up the journal message being sensible though.
