After my post yesterday on this forum i have a few more questions that universal credit are struggling to answer, i have put in for my mandatory consideration (15 days ago i believe) i gave evidence in the form of a statement from my self and from my mother about how my condition has worsened from the time of my assessment till now (struggling to leave the house and preform basic tasks due to anxiety levels) and i also put that my doctor is.more than happy to provide a statement if contacted. I am wondering what the chances are of them changing my award from LCW to LCWRA? while the extra money that comes with the award would help alot im more concerned about having to do work related activity which i mentioned in my statement and on the forums is causing me serious distress already, how often do they change there minds? And if my mandatory reconsideration doesnt go through whats my next step?
