This is a family friend that wants to ask what this means and if they are entitled to LCWRA because they don’t understand  it’s a medical report from the assessor for WCA  she did not speak herself so I don’t know how they wrote for her spoke at normal rate and all the above on letter don’t make sense? Please someone help her

    Underneath the Limited capability for work related activity is says "does not meet any of the descriptors for LCWRA"
    Further down the report it says Substantial Mental of Physical Risk.. the client has anxiety and depresion. The condition history, mental state examintion and medical knowledge of the condition does not suggest there would be a substantial risk to the mental .... then it stops. I can only assume then this would say there's no substantial risk if the client was found to have LCWRA. To me this reads there's no recommendation to be found to have LCWRA.
    Does it say anything about LCW?
    Please also remember that it's a recommendation only, once the decision is made if they are not happy they 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.

    It should mention it somewhere in the report. Can you see any points being scored for descriptors? This would be LCW and you need at least 15 points.

    So does that mean there’s no lcw or Lcwra?

    I don't know about LCW because i can't see anything that mentions this. Remember the assessment report is a recommendation only. They will need to wait for the decision. Once it's made if they have access to a journal the decision letter will be uploaded onto there.
