I was handing in sick notes from May 2023. G

[Added by Moderator] Got work capability assessment in July. End of July I was told I had qualified for LCWRA. What is the next step. I've been told I should expect extra payment? But not heard anything yet apart from that I'm on it.

    Assuming this was your first work capability assessment. Based on very limited information your first payment will be either Sept or October. Without knowing the answers to the following 2 questions it's impossible to advise correctly.

    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.

    Thanks Jimm, unfortunately, that still doesn't help and i will still need the information i asked for in my earlier comment before i can advise correctly.

    Original fit note was the 5th May. Work capability assessment was mid July. I got notified on the 31st July that I was on lcwra.
