    19th August is correct. This is because the waiting period is 3 full assessment periods. Had you reported your health condition when you first claimed and provided a fit note within 7 days of that then first payment would have been 19th July. 
    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.

    The LCWRA isn’t paid at all during the waiting period. Your first payment isn’t until August so no money is owed for the LCWRA element.

    If you were receiving any earnings and didn’t previously have the work allowance then you maybe owed some money for that. If no earnings were received there will be no money owed.
