    Hi had my assessment this morning for lcwra the lady I spoke to was lovely which obviously helps your anxiety 
    I may have already asked this before (apologies if so ) 
    if awarded lcwra 
    my heath condition was reported august 2021 
    fit note September 
    assessment period is 6th 
    payment 12tg 
    if backdated what month will they owe me from ? 
    No gaps in my first notes

    What date in August was health condition reported?
    If it was after 6th August it means you reported in the August - September AP. The waiting period would then be September to December. The LCWRA element element, if awarded, would be payable for December to January (the January payment).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Also to ask for a copy of the report is it on your journal you would request this ?

    That means your assessment periods are 6th-5th of each month. Your waiting period will be Aug/sept, Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov. LCWRA would start from AP 6th Nov/5th Dec with first payment being 12th Dec but only if found to have LCWRA. 
    Your waiting period question has been answered here.
    For the report you can put a message onto your journal but do be aware they won’t always agree to send it before the decisions been made for the WCA.

    It only causes more anxiety anyway to be honest. Sometimes when claiming UC the decision on the WCA is made within a week of having the assessment. Though some people do wait longer.

    Hi poppy quick question the uc are saying my report is not uploaded onto the system yet ? Am confused as the assessment people said they sent it straight away 
    what does this mean please 
    could it still be with the case manager for a decision and they just haven’t put it on the system yet ? Or is it lost ?

    It's returned digitally so i don't under the "it's not loaded onto the system yet" are the assessment providers sure it's been returned?
    There's nothing more you can do anyway until a decision's been made. Once it has the letter will be uploaded onto your journal. It's only been 5 days since your assessment, which isn't really that long.

    Yes I know it’s very soon since the assessment I was just wanting to see the report 
    I don’t understand it’s not loaded  on the system yet myself so strange isn’t it

    I did advise this the other day..
    That means your assessment periods are 6th-5th of each month. Your waiting period will be Aug/sept, Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov. LCWRA would start from AP 6th Nov/5th Dec with first payment being 12th Dec but only if found to have LCWRA. 
    do be aware they won’t always agree to send it before the decisions been made for the WCA.
    So don't be surprised if they refuse to send it.

    Hi poppy I finally received my medical report from the assessor who has recommended LCWRA hopefully the DM goes with this recommendation 
  • danixxx
    danixxx Member Posts: 126 Connected
    Also poppy if dm goes with assessor report then does the uc leave you alone ? Like do you still have to speak
    with work coach ?

    If found to have LCWRA there will be no work commitments.

    Hopefully I will get my decision soon it is known for them to go with the assessor report isn’t it 
    but also can go against it
    she has wrote a recommendation of medium term do you know what this means poppy ? 
  • poppy123456
    poppy123456 Member Posts: 29,531 Disability Gamechanger
    They mostly do yes but it has been known for them to go against it.
    LCWRA is an ongoing award and will continue to be paid until another decision says otherwise, there's no end date like there is for PIP. However, you can be reassessed anytime from 3 months. Although with the length of backlogs, that would be unlikely to happen.
    All you can do is wait for the decision.
