For 2 years sicklines were accepted by uc. I was knocked back for lcwra then, have only received basic uc for 2 years. Deemed fit for work. ( makes no sense ) Feb this year I applied again. Passed assessment and have been told NOW I'm entitled to it! Seems contradictory as I have to wait till June to get it. Oh and it doesn't count the last 2 years of being ill. How can they deem you fit when evidence to the contrary was accepted by them??? Anyone shed light on this. I feel their making contradictory rules up.

    Question answered on your duplicate thread here

    There’s nothing contradictory here, you were found fit for work after the first WCA so there’s nothing to backdate to that time.

    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.
