Changes to the much hated Work Capability Assessment from yesterday. This has to be good news for some. Are the Tories mellowing at last? ohmy.gif This was apparently the result of findings of a Commons Select Committee and brought in to law. They haven't specified the conditions and illnesses yet though.



From 29 September 2017, the WCA reassessment criteria will change for some Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Universal Credit (UC) claimants.

ESA claimants in the support group and UC claimants with limited capability for work and work-related activity (LCWRA) attending a Work Capability Assessment from 29 September 2017 will no longer need to be reassessed if it finds that they have a severe, lifelong disability, illness or health condition
are unlikely to ever be able to move into work

Claimants will be told if they will not be reassessed following their WCA.

This change does not affect:

ESA claimants placed in the work-related activity group
UC claimants who are found to have limited capability for work
