LCWRA help please 🙏

Hi all, i received a letter on my UC journal on the 10th Sept to say I have been awarded LCWRA. I'm just hoping someone can help me regarding when I will be paid as its quite complex. My AP is the 20th to 19th. This is where its starts getting quite complex, I was on UC before falling ill, but Dec 2022 I started with the illness I now have, but i have a 3 year old who was 2 at the time so I didnt need to be looking for work until she hit 3 in July 2023. I first got told by a work coach to Report a health change on the 24th April 23 but i didn't need to actively be looking for work until my daughter hit 3 in July. I supplied my first fit note on 13th June and have supplied them every month until this month because the Award letter says I no longer have to supply them. But.. my work coach got me to update a Health change on the 13th Aug to match what the fit note said. So I'm confused to whether i will receive a payment 4 months after my 1st fit note? Or will the health change update jeopardise this and make it longer to wait.
Thank you.
