Hi, I sent in a fit note on Jan 16 2023. Completed my application for LCWRA Mar 10, 2023 and got my decision Apr 10, 2023. Would my payment be from 13 weeks after my fit note was handed in? Many thanks

    The LCWRA element is payable for the first UC month that starts 3 months after the health condition was reported. It will be due in May or June depending on when your UC is paid.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
