Hi I am now aware that PIP reassessment’s are now being extended for another year or two without the need of any assessment’s, I was wondering is that the same for LCWRA?

    HI,

    That's not exactly correct. PIP awards are being extended yes, some longer than others but this doesn't mean you won't be sent the review forms at anythime so don't be fooled by the extension of your award.

    For LCWRA you can be assessed anytime from 3 months. The time they give you is just a guide. Work capability assessments are back on but backlogs will most likely be huge so your review could be delayed.
