Hi ..just wondering if someone could help me with my query.. I've now been on lwrca for nearly 3 years and have taken a 16 hour a week contract out in a local supermarket 7 months ago ( still struggling daily after losing my husband very suddenly) now that I've found a job will I be reassessed on the basis that I don't need benifits now as I've put myself forward to work... it was and is hard working but I could not manage to live on lwrca solely. Many Thanks

    Sorry for your loss. People do work when found to have LCWRA. If the work you do contradicts the reasons why you\re claiming 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.
