You can be automatically treated as having a limited capability for work-related activity if you are:

  • suffering from a progressive disease and consequently your death can reasonably be expected within six months;

  • receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy (or are likely to receive it within six months) or you are recovering from that treatment, and the Department for Work and Pensions is satisfied that you should be treated as having a limited capability for work-related activity;

  • suffering from some specific disease or bodily or mental disablement and consequently there would be a substantial risk to the mental or physical health of any person if you were found not to have a limited capability for work-related activity;

  • pregnant and there would be a serious risk to the health of you or your child if you did not refrain from work-related activity; or

  • (for universal credit only) have reached pension age and are entitled to attendance allowance, the highest rate of the care component of disability living allowance or the enhanced rate of the daily living component of personal independence payment.
