i have been claiming UC for about 3 years now, i was swopped over when i claimed esa so recieved  LCWA with my UC instead of ESA. recently i was asked to do a work capability assessment as it’s been a long time since i had one. they contacted my gp gave me an appointment t for saturday but then cancelled it and said i didn’t need the assessment now and i still get LCW . but my uc statement this month hasn’t got the LCW payment on it even though it’s been paid since 2020 . anyone have any idea what’s going on? i have messaged them just not had a reply. a bit stressed as i’m losing 390 pound. i have also just won my PIP tribunal and waiting to hear from them about that too. x

    If it was Limited Capability for work (LCW) then there's no extra money for this. You will only receive extra money if found to have Limited Capability For Work Related Activity. (LCWRA)

    If you put the question under the payment section then you'll have more chance of some replying.

    Log into your journal and then click and then click "journal." From there click "add a journal entry" and then you'll see a list of entries. Click the top one "payment" and then put your message.
