    When he's invited to apply for UC he will need to report his health condition, supported by a fit note. He will need to go through the work capability assessment before anything is awarded. If he's found to have LCWRA then he'll be entitled to extra money from the 4th month after he reported his health condition.
    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.
