Yeah, you need to include:

- current US passport
- any other passports you have held since you moved to the UK (i.e. if you renewed your passport in the last 5 years, or if you hold a second citizenship)

-- Do we have to physically include old passports too, or just scanned copies of old passport + the current physical passport?

No, ALL documents are scanned and uploaded now, even your current passport and your BRP card.

So, you do not mail any documents at all - you just take your passport and BRP card to your biometrics appointment to show as ID and then take them back home with you.

But while you do keep your current passport and BRP while the visa is processing, you cannot travel during that time as leaving the UK will invalidate the application.

Thanks so much, that's very good to know!

Another random but related question to ILR spousal visa ... To verify the 18K requirement, can I solely use my husband's payslips, bank statements and letter from his employer (the amount he makes covers the requirement) or do I have to include all of mine too? I'm currently in a temporary role so I figured it would be better to go with his again.

If one of you meets the 18.6k then you don't need to include information about the other job.
