    Great news! Is this LCW or LCWRA? If it was just LCW and your claim started after April 2017 then you won't receive any extra money each month.

    If it's definitely LCW then although they do agree that you have a LCW for work, so you don't have to look for work but will need to prepare for work sometime in the future. In normal times you would need to attend appointments but what is expected of you will depend on your claimant commitment.
