    If the decision is limited capability for work and you disagree with the decision and think you qualify for LCWRA then you can request the Mandatory Reconsideration. 

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    LCWRA means you'll get extra money from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you first reported your health condition. It also means you wouldn't have to attend any further appointments or look for any work.
    If your decision was Limited capability for work (LCW) there's no extra money. You won't be expected to look for work but you maybe expected to attend work focused interviews to prepare to work sometime in the future.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
