    Yes, it's LCWRA and for this you need fit notes from your GP, evidence to support your claim and most likely a face to face assessment.
    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.

    It's not guaranteed either because you have to be placed into that group before they pay you the extra money.
