Will my LCWRA award end the same date as my PIP award? I was never told a date

I receive PIP and UC LCWRA.

I know when my PIP award ends, but I don't know if the LCWRA element of UC is the same date? I never received any dates regarding that.

Thanks for any input.

    LCWRA is an ongoing award and will continue for as long as you remain entitled to it. You can contact DWP to ask if they have a date for your review but this is just a guide and it doesn't mean you'll be reviewed on that date. You can be reassessed anytime from 3 months. There's huge backlogs for work capability assessments at the moment so i would try not to worry.

    Hi Poppy

    Thanks for your answer. I read somewhere else online that they generally they review you after one year, is this true?

    That's not exactly correct. As advised, they can reassess you anytime from 3 months. It can be a year, 18 months, 3 years. There are no set timescales and the time they tell you is nothing more than a guide.

    Just to add my own experience my lcwra has not been reviewed for nearly 3years now..I was awarded at tribunal though with a recommendation not to be reviewed for 3 years 

    Expecting review forms anytime but not stressing deal with it when it happens

    Personally I wouldnt ring the DWP to ask about LCWRA, if you not been asked for assessment then dont worry about it, the award is ongoing until terminated by claimant or overridden by another decision.
