I applied for UC on 05/03 and submitted a sick note that was dated from 06/03 for 3 months.  I was sent a UC50 on 15/03 and was found to have LCWRA on 30/03.  Will my LCWRA payment be from my July payment?
My assessment period is 5th to the 4th of the month with payment on 11th.  Thank you.

    There’s a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month.

    Your waiting period will be March to June… LCWRA starts from assessment period June 5th to Just 4th and first payment will be July 11th. No LCWRA element is owed. 
    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.

    Thank you, much appreciated.  I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise to you for my behaviour towards you last week.  I have reasons (which aren't your problem) but no excuses so please accept my apology.
