Good day, I have a question about universal credit. I need to confirm that I cannot work again. I can't understand how and where I can do this. I have AMC and I really can't work, I have big problems with my legs.

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

    Apologies, are you looking for information into Work Capability Assessments? I've linked to them just in case. You can leave a note on your UC journal to ask for one, but you will need to provide a fit note from your GP.

    The problem is that I have already gone through the whole procedure and confirmed my disability, but I was in the job search group from Universal Credit, and after some time I started working. However, I could only work for 2 days because my legs hurt very badly, and I left. After that, they do not accept my fit note and say that after the last WCA, I am able to work, but it's not possible. I really can't work; I have terrible knee pain, I can't move my wrists and elbows, I can't raise my hands above my head. All of this is part of my condition that I've had since birth. The question is, can I do a new WCA to confirm my disability again for Universal Credit? My disability call AMC

    Yes you can put in a new application for a wca
    Remember its not just about proving you have a disability but you have to state how your condition affects you and the reasons why you are incapable of working.
    It sounds like your condition has deteriorated since your last assessment and you have explained that well.
