    Hi,

    There's no specific condition that meets the criteria, it's about satisfying all 4 of the criteria listed here.

    I copied this from the above link.

    To avoid a reassessment, claimants will have to satisfy, all four of the following:

    1. the level of function will always meet LCWRA criteria;
    2. the condition will always be present (some lifelong conditions are present from birth, but others will develop or be acquired later in life);
    3. no realistic prospect of recovery of function (with advice on this being based on currently available treatment and not on the prospect of scientists discovering a cure in the future);
    4. unambiguous condition (following all relevant clinical investigations a recognised medical diagnosis has been made).

    Goodluck with your re-assessment.

    I do too but sadly i wasn't placed into that group when i was last reassessed in November last year. It's very specific criteria and very difficult to gain entry into. I've only ever heard of a few people placed into that group where they are not re-assessed again.

    Fingers crossed you will be one of them. Good luck.
