Andy McCarthy made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

1. Please provide a template of the letter provided to Universal Credit claimants informing them of the outcome of their Work Capability Assessment- which I believe is called a UCD81.

2. Please confirm if there is guidance on what information is to be included within this decision letter as standard practice.

3. Is an explanation given as to how that decision was reached within the decision letter? For instance, does the decision letter provide a breakdown of which schedule 6 or 7 descriptors the claimant satisfies?

Yours faithfully,

Andy McCarthy
