unstar this property answer text <p>Work Capability Assessments do not have expiry dates or performance indicators. As part of the Work Capability Assessment a healthcare professional gives advice on when they consider that a claimant should be reassessed, based on when it is expected that the individual’s condition will have improved to the point where looking for work may become a realistic option. Claimants are encouraged to provide any additional evidence in support of their claim, including from supporting medical professionals, which is taken into account in making the decision on their claim, including when the re-referral date is set.</p><p> </p><p>Re-referral dates can be 3, 6, 12, 18 or 24 months for those who have limited capability for work. For those who have limited capability for work-related activity, a three-year re-referral date can be recommended. Furthermore, from 29 September 2017 those placed in ESA’s Support Group and the UC equivalent who have the most severe and lifelong health conditions or disabilities, whose level of function would always mean that they would have Limited Capability for Work and Work-Related Activity, and be unlikely ever to be able to move into work, will no longer be routinely reassessed.</p>
