Pip review & UC lcwra

If someone loses their PIP, does this then have a knock on effect with UC Lcwra?   It get the impression it would. As when i originally was awarded lcwra, they wanted to interview in 14months time..but when i got the 3yr PIP award they never did hold to that review... Now imagine PIP stops a claimants award(we all should know this very possibility and the myriad reasons why they do this) .Doesn't this then give UC carte Blanche to then also mishandle you and consider stopping your LCWRA?..I sense they're linked in many ways...As it seemed they held back on the review as soon as i received the long PIP award 2yrs ago.. Any have any thoughts on this?

    PIP and a LCWRA are separate. Losing PIP does not affect LCWRA. LCWRA continues until such time as you have another Work Capability Assessment and a different decision is made.

    WCA review dates are only a guide and are often later than planned. In the last few years there have been, and still are, huge backlogs.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
