Got LCWRA- now what?

sarahjoanne Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi everyone!
I just got the news yesterday that they've decided I have limited capability for work and work related activity, which is such a relief. I was hoping that now I have 'proof' that I am in fact disabled that I might be able to get some other things that might actually help in my day to day life (beyond more money, which obviously definitely helps). But everything I could think of, like a blue badge, or a rail card, or a bus pass, all require you to have PIP, and usually at the higher mobility rate. I've had my PIP assessment, but they said it could be eight weeks before I hear back, and who knows whether I'll get it, or if I'll get the higher mobility rate, if I'll have to appeal, all that jazz. Does anyone know of any schemes that have LCWRA as their eligibility criteria? Bearing in mind I'm more or less house bound currently with chronic migraines and fatigue

Thanks :)

ps  not sure if this is the right category, apologies if not!

    Hello @sarahjoanne and welcome to our online community, I'm glad you found us and hope you are having a nice Friday so far.

    The world of disability benefits is a complex one, and unfortunately you are right in that PIP is more the gateway benefit to other support schemes.

    I hope it won't be too long a wait until you do hear back from PIP, and if you need help with appealing a decision - if it comes to that - just let us know.
