Employment Advice - LCWRA

Beanie71Beanie71 Member Posts: 32 Connected
I am currently employed part time and have just been notified that I'm entitled to LCWRA as currently signed off work with RA and have been since July, if i decide to leave this role due to not being able to cope with the long day/travel/stress etc and take up something I can do at home for myself will this effect my claim.

    Hi,

    You've already been assessed as having LCWRA and leaving your job will not affect your benefit claim.

    Thank you @poppy123456 for your quick reply, just a bit confused with what it all means as I have had no correspondence and clarification of what it means yet xx

    The LCWRA element pays an extra £341.92 per month from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you first sent evidence of your health condition.

    You will also have a work allowance which means you can earn a certain amount of money before you start to see the 63% reduction in your UC. If you claim the housing element it will be £292 per month and if you don't receive the housing element it will be £512 per month.
