    LCWRA is an ongoing award and continues for as long as you remain entitled to it. The timescales they give you is nothing more than a guide and you can be re-assessed anytime from 3 months.
    Some wait 3-4 years between assessments. You will know when to expect a review because there will be a letter uploaded onto your journal telling you, you've been referred. You will then receive the form in the post soon after.
