Hi all, after a bad, serious stroke some years ago, my Bro is getting LCWRA now, because of cognitive decline, poor short term memory, and wandering lost. There was no date for re assessment on his very recent WCA, we are wondering when if at all the poor soul will be reassessed? They agreed, we think that he would never be able to return to work and he's 3 years from retirement anyhow. Anyone any ideas please? It was a helluva struggle getting him to the WCA! Thanks all x

    LCWRA is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise. Decision letters for the WCA never usually have dates on them. 
    He can contact UC and ask when the estimated date is but it will just be a guide and nothing more. 
    When he’s due for a review he will receive a letter on his journal telling him he’s being referred for the WCA. A few days later he should receive the form.
    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.
