    LCWRA is part of UC. For this you will need to report your health condition and provide fit notes without any gaps until a decision is made on your work capability assessment. 

    Once you provide a fit note you should be referred for a work capability assessment on around day 29. 

    Have you provided a fit note and reported your health condition? 

    Financially, there are no other benefits possible to claim, other than council tax reduction. If you’re struggling with food then there’s food banks which can help. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/food-bank/using-a-food-bank/
    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.
