I wanted to know I have FND 
and have just been awarded the lcwra 390 a month iv been off the **** since June last year.
The question is I'm currently employed with a very physical job but sending monthly sick notes and wanted to also know about having a second job just starting and it is literally outside my home and is only required of me to work 2hrs a day would I lose my lcwra and also about my first job as it would be just to impossible for me to go back.
So basically would dwp reassess me even although it would only be 2hrs a day and also with a friend and is very flexible with me and the job.

    You can work on LCWRA and there is an income disregard the size of which depends on whether or not you claim the housing element. Above the disregard you will lose 55p of every £1 earned.

    @ry238 As others have said you can work whilst on LCWRA Be aware though that if the work you do contradicts the reasons why you were found to have LCWRA then it can go be taken into consideration on the next review, also you should no longer need to be sending in fit notes if you have received an award.

    Hi @ry238, welcome to the scope community :) I see you've already met some of our other members. I hope you find the advice and support you're looking for here.

    As other's have already said, you can work and get LCWRA, however if the work you are doing contradicts the reasons you were given LCWRA from your assessment then it's likely a review will happen.

    I'll move this to our Universal Credit category, it'll be more visible to people who know a lot about LCWRA incase you have any further questions :)
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
