Hello! Could anyone be of any assistance please :) LWCRA related.

F_Socks2015_ Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Good afternoon. 

I had put in my FIT note December 6th 2023 and I had applied everything I needed too in regards to LWCRA, with the help of the JC. I went to the meeting (through the support of a friend) and I was awarded LWCRA March 6th 2023. I was told by UC, that I had 'just missed' the assessment period for the award to be accepted onto my UC claim, so I should get it in April. 

However, I am being told different things by different people. I was told that I will get a backpayment (from December 2022)  and I have been told that I wouldn't. I do not know how much I will be getting either, I have tried to look at online resources, but none have been of any use as I am just simply getting confused. 

Could someone please help me understand what's what? 

Thank you!

    There’s a typo in your date for sending your first fit note and it should be 2022 and not 2023.
    May I ask what date you usually receive your money each month? 
    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.
