Return to Study - LCWRA

LouiseBlack Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi, can you advise if the LCWRA benefit could potentially be stopped if I attend a grant-funded study course that may enable me to return to work at some point? I'm concerned that DWP may decide if I can attend an online study course, then I'm 'fit for work'. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    Your LCWRA is paid as part of UC, this will continue. If there’s any Maintenance Loan available then your award will reduce by the full amount of this, divided by the number of months you study for minus a £110 per month disregard.

    Just for clarity, do you also receive PIP?
