    Typo that should be Sept 2022. There are delays in some areas and some are waiting quite sometime for an assessment, longer than several months. The lose of your form hasn’t helped matters here either. 

    You will likely need an assessment before a decision can be made. Most are through telephone. All you can do really is wait. 

    If you’re found to have LCWRA you will receive an extra £354.28/month, which is due to be increased from April this a year. 
    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.
