Decision Letter Not Working

MK1993MK1993 Posts: 5Member Listener
Hi 
I have received my decision letter on Monday, I was found to have LCWRA, but the letter has not been filled in properly as one of the boxes was not selected.

i have rang Universal credit and asked them to send me a copy of the report from the decision maker, that will include the points that I received. But I have received the letter today and it’s the report from the work capability assessment they have sent. I already have this. 

What should I do.

    HI and welcome,

    What box wasn't selected? LCWRA is not about scoring points, it's about satisfying at least one of the descriptors here.

    Or substantial risk, which is the main route into this group for a lot of people and again no points are scored or needed for this.

    As you've received the assessment report it will tell you what the recommendations were for LCWRA.

    This is what they didn’t confirm. And it also doesn’t state how long I have it for

    To be honest i'm not sure on the answer to that drop down box, despite my knowledge. As it already states LCWRA then that's the decision.

    Timescales, it never states this because they can reassess you anytime from 3 months. You can ring to ask for a the timescale but it doesn't mean anything other than it's just a guide.

    The letter they put on my journal , the one I sent on here that is all it states is there any more information that should be on there

    That's all the information they put on the work capability assessment decision letters, it's usually very vague. There's no timescales, as i advised. Whether you're owed any backdated money will depend on your assessment period dates and when you sent your first fit note. This information isn't put on the letters because they put another message on your journal 7 days later.

    Ok well thank you for your help

    You're welcome,

    If you're not owed any backdated money then the extra LCWRA is paid from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you sent your first fit note but there's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time.
