    Your first LCWRA payment will be either Nov or December. The exact date will depend on what dates your assessment periods cover, or what date you usually receive your money each month. 

    This is because it's a full 3 month asssessment period waiting time, the extra money is the paid from the 4th month, with payment being made at the end of that 4th 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.
