    A new claim shouldn’t have been needed. It should have just been a change of circumstances reported through your other journal. 
    If you kept a copy of the decision letter for LCWRA then show them this at the appointment. 
    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.

    Hi I've just checked it was a change in circumstance so everything should still be the same? I can't see my limited capability to work and work related activity award as there's no statement on yet

    You said you started a new claim so there won't be any details of your LCWRA award.

    You won't see the LCWRA element anyway until you receive your statement. I think when you go from joint to single claim everything is cleared from your journal. Your claimant commiments should just say "you agree to report any changes"

    Sounds perfectly normal for someone that was found to have LCWRA. As i advised, you won't see the LCWRA element until you have your first statement as a single person.
