    If The 5th Feb was the same date you reported your health condition then your waiting period will be as follows. March to June… LCWRA starts from 2nd June to 1st July and first payment will be 8th July.

     This means they owe you 1 months LCWRA element up until this month. Money owed will be paid separately to your usual monthly money and often takes a few weeks to pay it. 
    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.
