Hi quick question about WCA assessment

I had my wca assessment 6 months ago and have still not received an answer yet, nothing in my journal apart for reminding me to send sick notes from my doctor which he sends me every 4 months 
Is this how long it normally takes thanks

    That's rather a long time and not acceptable in my opinion. If you're having no joy from UC then i'd advise you to contact your local MP and they will hopefully contact UC on your behalf. That usually gets them shifted. https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-an-mp-or-lord/contact-your-mp/

    You need to make sure you give your name and address and tell them exactly what's happened.


    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 Poppy 
    1 last question, I just had occupational health meeting and the doctor said he is recommending to my employer that they give me medical illness retirement.
    Does that mean I won't have to look for work even if I don't get lowcra thanks

    Unfortunately, that will have to relevance to the WCA process. For LCWRA then at least one of the following descriptors needs to apply. Or "substantial risk" which you can see at "number 4" at the top.
