    Non one can tell you whether you would qualify for LCWRA because we don't know exactly how your conditions affect you. It's not based on any diagnosis. You can see the descriptors here https://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/universal-credit-uc/uc-faq/limited-capability-for-work-related-activity Just one needs to apply the majority of the time.

    During the assessment you'll be asked questions about your health condition and how it affects your daily life. If you kept a copy of the form (you should have) you filled in and returned have a read of that before the assessment. Try not to answer any questions with just a yes or no and try to give as much detail as possible.

    The assessment can last anywhere from 20 to 120 minutes.

    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.
