Applying for work and LCWRA

robotsayswhat Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi, I have schizophrenia (a mental or brain disorder that results in lapses of ill health where you hear voices and have delusional thoughts)

I am currently on LCWRA but I would like to return to work, my question or query is; will I have to restart a LCW assessment if i get a job and fail to keep it?

Sincerely, many thanks.

    LCWRA is on ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise. If you do start working then you must report a change a circumstances on your journal and tell them you’re starting work. 

    If you stop working you just need to tell them. You will not have to go through the WCA again. 

    Please also be aware that if the work you do contradicts the reasons why you were found to have LCWRA then it could go against you when 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.

    Hey there @robotsayswhat and welcome to the community. :)

    I can see Poppy has already given you the answer, but I just wanted to stop in and say hi. It's great you're wanting to get back to work, do you have an idea of what you want to do?
