I have just won my appeal and been awarded Lcwra on 21st December and am in the support group. My question is can I now give up the job I had to take as was previously assessed as fit to work without being sanctioned . I cannot get a straight answer from my work coach , just that I am now in the no work related group ( think the answer is in the name lol). As my first payment under this wont be until 22nd Jan, I just want to make sure.

    You mention Support Group, LCWRA but you posted in the Universal credit part of the forum. As you have a work coach then i'm assuming you're claiming UC? and not ESA?

    If you're claiming UC then you do not have to work or look for work because you're claiming LCWRA.

    Sorry. I have just been awarded Lcwra for UC, I was working because I was declared fit to work while awaiting the appeal . I just wanted to make sure I could give the job up that I started in sept, hence the work coach . Thanks Poppy123456
