I am currently employed part time and have just been notified that I'm entitled to LCWRA as currently signed off work with RA and have been since July, if i decide to leave this role due to not being able to cope with the long day/travel/stress etc and take up something I can do at home for myself will this effect my claim.

    Hi,

    You've already been assessed as having LCWRA and leaving your job will not affect your benefit claim.
    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.

    The LCWRA element pays an extra £341.92 per month from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you first sent evidence of your health condition.

    You will also have a work allowance which means you can earn a certain amount of money before you start to see the 63% reduction in your UC. If you claim the housing element it will be £292 per month and if you don't receive the housing element it will be £512 per month.
    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.
