Hi everyone 😊
I had my face-to-face work capability assessment today - such a relief to get it over with! I feel it went well and after 40 mins she said she didn't need to do a physical assessment as she had all she needed which I'm hoping is a good sign. 
I was just wondering though about the fact that I mentioned that I am still managing to work 12 hours a week. Will this harm my chances of getting LCWRA? I feel I meet the criteria for LCWRA on my mobility.
Thank you

    There's lots of people that work while claiming LCWRA. I'm afraid i can't tell you if the work you do would contradict anything because i don't know anything about your health conditions and how they affect you.

    Once the report is returned a decision can take up to 12 weeks but many people have a decision before that.
    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.

    Thanks for your reply, Poppy, and sorry I didn't give enough detail.
    I work as a maths and English tutor and don't think it would contradict anything else I said. I have osteoarthritis in my back, hips, knees and hands. I was just wondering if the very fact I am doing any work would preclude me from getting LCWRA. I didn't realise that many people still work whilst getting this so hopefully it won't. Xx
