    It’s an extra £390.06/month. It’s paid from the 4th month after you reported her health condition. Providing you sent a fit note within 7 days of that and continued to send them without any gaps until a decision was made.

    When it’s paid from exactly will depend on the answer to the following 2 questions.

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

    What date exactly does she receive her 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. That means her waiting period will be July/Aug, Aug/Sept, Sept/Oct... LCWRA starts from assessment period 11th Oct to 10th Nov and first payment will be 17th Novemeber. No LCWRA element is owed. You will need to check her statement next month to make sure the LCWRA element is included.
