I'm on LCWRA. Will I be accepted for PIP, or is there different criteria?

I’m awaiting my decision from my work capability assessment I had on the 7th January for PIP and was wondering if anyone knew the criteria needing to pass?

I am currently on Universal Credit and on the LCWRA disability element. I am not expected to work anytime in the near future due to my mental health and my risk of seizures.

if I’m on LCWRA would I be accepted for PIP or is it different criteria’s? Thanks

    Pip is different criteria to LCWRA and different benefits 

    Pip is how your condition affects your daily living and mobility against the descriptors 

    Nobody can say if you will get awarded as nobody knows how you are affected 

    Some 0people get it for mental health others dont 
    You can request a copy of your assessment report and this will give you the recommendations but it isnt the final decision 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can't help I will
