    You only posted your question 30
    minutes ago. Members here offer their advice freely in their own spare time and sometimes a question may not be answered immediately. 

    There’s a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month after you reported your health condition. Providing you sent a fit note within 7 days of that and continued to send them without any gaps until a decision was made on your WCA.

    Without knowing the exact date you sent your first fit note the LCWRA element will be paid from either August or Sept 2022. 

    The above advice is assuming you’re not claiming UC with a partner that already receives the LCWRA element on your claim. 

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Any money owed will be paid separately to your usual monthly money and can take a few weeks to pay what is owed. I can't tell you when it's paid from exactly because you haven't told me what date you sent your first fit note... April 2022 doesn't help.

    You should receive the LCWRA element in your next statement this month.
