If you are placed in the LCW group after the work capability assessment, you will be required to attend periodic work-focused interviews with your work coach in order to continue receiving your full benefit. At the first interview, you will discuss your work prospects, what you are willing to do in order to move into work and the support that is available to you, even if you feel that you are currently unable to work due to your health condition. These interviews have been suspended as a result of Coronavirus. At the time of writing, May 2022, it is not clear when exactly they will begin again.

You will take part in further follow-up work-focused interviews at intervals to be determined by your work coach. Your work coach will discuss what activities you could be doing to help you get in to work and will also draw up an action plan. It is important to make sure that this action plan takes into account the limitations your health condition put upon you.
