    You've posted on a thread that's 2 years old. LCWRA is part of UC and increases your maximum UC entitlement by £390.06/month, your usual pay date will remain unchanged.

    When it's paid from exactly will depend on the answers to these 2 questions.

    What date exactly did you report your health condition/send your first fit note?

    What date exactly do you 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.
