UC reasesmemt for LCWRA
Hello, I'm new here, and looking for some help with this question. Thank you in advance.
In 2017 I had a universal credit capability for work assessment, I was placed in the LCW group, I tried to appeal it and ask for a reconsideration, but every time I phoned I got a different answer and in the end got told to stop calling and br patient, I never heard anything after that so just remained in the LCW group.
I have severe mental health illnesses and have recently developed some physical conditions, yesterday finally after 5 years I had a reassessment for my capability for work, it went really well the lady assessing me was lovely and made it clear to me that she was going to strongly suggest I be placed in the LCWRA group.
I'm wondering how long I will need to wait before I start receiving the extra payments? If I am placed in the LCWRA group. I've read its 3 months from sick notes? But I was never giving them sick notes, they said they weren't needed, they know how ill I am so I was never made to give proof or have sick notes. Will it still be 3 months?
