    Your assessment periods are 4th to 3rd of each month. This means your waiting period will be Feb to May.. LCWRA starts from May 4th to June 3rd and first payment will be June 10th. No LCWRA element is owed. 

    If you didn’t previously have the work allowance and you received any earnings since you sent your first fit note then they may owe you some money from this. The work allowance will apply from your Jan/Feb assessment period. 
    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.

    You won’t receive extra money this month based on the information you gave here. There’s a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month. It’s not paid at all during the waiting period. 

    The helpline often give incorrect information so you should rely on that.

    Yes 10th June for the LCWRA element. Your assessment periods are 4th to 3rd of each month so 4 days earlier than you said will not make any difference to the LCWRA element.

    If you were receiving any earnings and didn't have the work allowance they may owe you some money from that because the work allowance will apply from the assessment period in which you reported the changes (Jan/Feb)
