    Hi Poppy  Limited Capability for Work x

  • poppy123456poppy123456 Community champion Posts: 18,542 Disability Gamechanger
    As you were given limited capability for work, if your claim started after April 2017, which it seems like it did, then i'm afraid there's no back dated money. You will be placed into that group but your money will stay the same.

    Only those that are given limited capability for work related activity are paid the extra money.

    Oh  I thought being in the LCWRA was £111 per week

    Yes, it is but you said you were given limited capability for work (LCW)  and that's different.

    ah right my decision says limited capability for work related activity sorry a bit confused by all this. So can it be backdated Poppy ?

  • poppy123456poppy123456 Community champion Posts: 18,542 Disability Gamechanger
    The difference is backdated to the 14th week of your claim but it can take 8 weeks to receive it after a Tribunal win.
