Hi A,

Great news on The ESA SG Award !! :cheer:

Now that you are in The SG, you no longer have to send fit notes/sick notes in to The DWP.

If you wish to know the recommended period of your SG Award before reassessment, and request other documentation that may be useful at your next reassessment have a read through : This Post.
