    We've had lots of members that were either found fit for work or found to have LCW rather than LCWRA and gone all the way to Tribunal and won. You will mostly only hear bad stories on any forum. Whether you're found to have LCWRA will totally depend on how your conditions affect your ability to do any type of work.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I was turned down about 4 years ago and went to tribunal and won 

    The process took over 14 months from first applying to tribunal and a further 7 weeks for backpay 

    However the wait time for tribunals isn't as long now with them doing phone hearings 

    Good luck don't give up 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will
