Work capability assessment decision.
Hello, I was supposed to have a WCA but at the time was in hospital.I had a hip replacement op due to secondary cancer in the head of the Femur.They are investigating the primary source,which is somewhere in my Torso. Also I have a large shadow on my lower left lung.So, my SSP ran out and my employers sent me the paperwork for ESA. This I passed onto Universal credit on 02/10/18,as I was claiming and receiving rent allowance of £226 per mnth. On the 04/10/18 ,I received WCA decision, stating that they had decided I have limited capability for work and work related activity.I no longer have to send sick notes.They wont ask me to search or prepare for work. They have given me £328.32 because of my disability,illness or health condition.I have applied for PIP and had home visit 25/09/18 and will receive a decision within the next 6 weeks. My employers owe me approx £1450 holiday pay. Do I have to declare this ? Also , I shall never be able to resume my position within the company. The work involved long hours driving ,heavy lifting and carrying. There would not be a suitable alternative job within the company Please advise me as to what I should do ? I am 62 years of age and by the time I have recovered from my treatments ,I shall be of retirement age. Should I retire now on the grounds of my disability and ill health ? Please advise me as I am extremely confused as to what is happening and what I should do. Kind Regards Yanis
