    It will depend on what date exactly you sent your first fit note.

    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.

    That means your waiting period will be April to July.. LCWRA starts from assessment period July 6th to August 5th and first payment will be 11th August. No LCWRA element is owed.
