I’ve just had my telephone consultation for Lcwra… I know it takes 4-6 weeks for decision to be determined… but if I am awarded the Lcwra how long is it before I get my first payment. Also I have been providing fit notes since June 2023 .will I get any backdated money. I hope someone can answer my queries..

    Your first payment will be either Oct or November. 

    The exact date will depend on what date you reported your health condition/provided your first fit note. 
    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.
