WCA limited capability for work-related activity assessment

Work capability assessment

For universal credit, the limited capability for work-related activity assessment is used to find out what restrictions can be applied to the work-related responsibilities that you must meet to keep getting the benefit in full. If it is decided that you have a limited capability for work-related activity, no work-related responsibilities will apply to you. In addition, you will be entitled to the work capability amount.

For employment and support allowance, the limited capability for work-related activity assessment is used to decide whether you are put in the support group of claimants or the work-related activity group.

The assessment has a list of descriptors, relating to both physical functions and mental, cognitive or intellectual functions. If you meet at least one of them, you will have a limited capability for work-related activity.

You will be automatically treated as having a limited capability for work-related activity in some circumstances.

If you are found not to have a limited capability for work-related activity, you can challenge the decision.
