Stopping UC & LCWRA

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well.

I guess I’m looking for some advice and/or guidance.

I’ve been receiving LCWRA for a few years now. It has been amazing and I’m fully aware I’m lucky to receive it.

I have had a really bad time in the last 4/5 months, more so than usual anyway. It’s made me think a lot about my current situation and what I need to do to help myself. I’ve decided I want to stop receiving UC/LCWRA because I’ve realised it actually affects me. I’m going to move back in with my parents in the next month and just focus on helping myself.

With this, do I need to give a reason as to why I want to end my claim? Or is it just as simple as saying I want to end it?

Thank you.

    Moving in with your parents doesn’t mean that you will no longer be entitled to UC with the LCWRA element. You can just end the LCWRA element.

    To end your claim you will need to close your whole UC and then there will be no entitlement.

    Please think very very carefully before you do that. What will you live off?

    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.
