    Your waiting period will be Feb to May.. LCWRA starts from assessment period May to June and first payment would be 3rd July. No LCWRA element is owed.
    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.
