    Hi,

    Yes you can work but do be aware that the work you do can go against you when you're next assessed.

    Having LCWRA means you also have a work allowance, how much you get will depend on circumstances. If you claim the housing element then your work allowance will be £287 per month. If you don't claim the housing element then your work allowance will be £503 per month. This means that you can earn up to that amount before you receive any deductions in your UC.
