Hello everyone 

can someone please help with this. 

So I’ve been awarded the low capability of work universal credit. 

They sent a letter on Saturday saying I was owed 2700 in backdated payment. 

Dose anyone know when I will get this payment?  Will it just go in my bank on a random day or will it go in the bank the day I normally get my universal credit payment. 

Thanks in advance for any help
