    The LCWRA element will increase your maximum UC entitlement by £390.06/month. This is payable from the 4th month after you reported your health condition/sent your first fit note.
    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.

    No because the disability premiums are not payable when claiming UC (LCWRA is part of UC). They only apply to legacy benefits such as Income Related ESA, JSA and Income Support.
