Hi all. I'm interested in finding out how long people are waiting, after returning their UC50 form, for their appointment for WCA?

    It varies considerably between a few weeks to several months, possibly longer. It really depends on backlogs and each individual case.

    Thinking back to all the threads that I advise on here, some are owed money for several months, possibly longer and some are not owed anything at all and they still have to wait for the 3 month waiting period before their extra money is paid. 
    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.
