Where to find LCW form and descriptors
I applied for PIP nearly a year ago, and I'm currently appealing DWP declining my claim. The process has been horrendous.
I will be below maximum savings threshold for universal credit in a few weeks time, and I'm now looking into getting LCW so I don't have to apply for lots of jobs while I'm currently disabled and recovering from long term illness.
Does anybody have any advice about how to go about doing this? I know I need to first get a doctor's note, and my experience with PIP tells me that it would help to ask the doctor to word that carefully at this stage.
I also remember when I was looking into PIP there was a helpful website with a quiz where I put what I was able to do for each descriptor and it told me what score I could aim for. Can someone direct me to a similar site for LCW for universal credit?
Also where is the form that I'd need to fill out for LCW?
