After applying for LCWRA I got refused but then asked them to look at my claim again and was awarded

is there anyway I can find out how long I was awarded LCWRA for and how long before the date is up so I have to renew and will they send me a letter to reapply ?

thanks

    Hello @apples have you asked on your journal about a confirmation letter? See if you can do that, and let us know how you get on. 

    I'm glad you've been awarded now :)

    Hi @Alex_Scope

    I was awarded LCWRA a while back to be honest but can’t remember if I was told how long it would be awarded for

    There's no harm in asking again if you need to @apples, pop a note on your journal and hopefully they can come back to you about it soon.

    Decision letters do not have timescales on them. You can ask on your journal if they can tell you the referral date they have and they will tell you. However, this is nothing more than a guide. LCWRA is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise.
    Reviews have been suspended since the start of the pandemic and when they do start back there will be considerable backlogs. Therefore, it's unlikely you will be reviewed anytime soon.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
