    Did you need to visit your work coach while waiting for a decision or supply further fit notes? 

    You need to continue to send fit notes until a decision is made on your WCA. If there's any gaps in your fit notes then it can affect when the LCWRA element is paid from if placed into this group.
    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.

    For the work capability assessment decision once the report is returned it can be anything up to 12 weeks. However, if you have access to a journal then some have decisions within a week, others a few weeks and some several. It really depends on each individual case.
