It states that LCW (limited capability for work) will be removed while (LCWRA (limited capability for work related activity) will remain. It`s a little muddling because I take that to mean LCW relating to the WRAG group will be removed and LCWRA Support Group) will remain? I know new ESA claimants won`t now receive the £29.00 extra a week from April, but existing claimants like me will continue to receive that until the time comes that we either lose at appeal, or remain on ESA continually. Not an easy task.

But Universal Credit seem to be saying they will only recognise LCWRA (Support Group) unless they mean everyone on ESA would come under this one banner?

Edited: Actually, reading the first part again, I think they mean the extra payments will remain for existing claimants. I just read it wrong! :blink:

Correct CoD on UC LCW = WRAG and LCWRA = SG

the rules for both are largely the same. This change just means both LCW and WRAG are losing the extra money presumably because cutting income cures illness? I dunno wtf planet the government are hailing from these days but it sure as hell ain't this one.
