What happens after LCWRA period is over?

Rachelgee90 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
I was awarded LCWRA and the period is due to end in August 2024. Does anyone know or has anyone experienced what happens when this time lapses? Do you have to go through the whole process again of asking for a form and filling it all in and then having a work capability assessment or is it like PIP and it's just a review type of form where you state if anything has got better, the same or is worse? 

Thanks for your help in advance

    LCWRA has no end date. It's an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise. This is the reason why decision letters do not have end dates on them. The timescale you've been given is just a guide and nothing more. Your money will continue for as long as you remain entitled to it.

    When it's time for your review you will receive a letter on your journal (assuming you have access to one) telling you that they are referring you. A few days later you will recieve the form in the post. It will be the same process as it was the first time.
    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.
