Hi, I did put a message through my journal to find out how long I was awarded lcwra and got a response:

LCWRA awarded from Oct 2023. Prognosis 12 months + 2 months = 14 to input onto build. Relevant Period applies as this is not a review decision, transition or terminal case.'

What does this mean? I'll be reassessed in Oct again?

    It means that’s the date they have for a referral. It doesn’t actually mean you will be referred on that date. 

    LCWRA is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise. I’ve always found it rather pointless to ring to ask what my referral date is because I don’t find it helpful. 

    At the moment reviews for most people with LCWRA are still suspended. When they do start back there will no doubt be backlogs so it could be quite sometime before you’re next reviewed. 
    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 @Casivkbf97qfkbc and welcome to the community. :)

    Congratulations on you LCWRA award, that must be a relief?  It looks like they've given you a 14 month award, so they'll look into reassessing you in December possibly? I'm not sure what 'input onto build' is though, it looks like they've just copy/pasted from their accounts. It may be best to reply on your journal and ask for clarification.

    I agree which is why I was going back and forth into asking them but I did in the end. Now I wish I didnt because it feels too soon and creates anxiety for nothing its best somethings are unknown. & yes i've seen a lot of thread about backlogs but then it confuses me to how they assessing people and awarding them so quick now? I'm not sure what 'input onto build' mean and don't want to have to ask them...

    Relevant period means the waiting period you have to wait for the extra money to be paid. I have no idea what input into build means, sorry.

    Hi, thank you!!
    I think I will leave it as it is, I have to much anxiety to ask for any explaination.
