    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is then paid from the 4th month after you reported your health condition, supported by a fit note within 7 days of that. It's the paid at the end of that 4th month. The LCWRA element isn't paid at all during this waiting period.

    When it's paid from exactly will depend on the answers to the following questions.

    What date exactly did you report your health condition/provide your first fit note? If you're not sure then please look through your journal because i need exact dates.

    What date do you usually 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.

    Hi @Christine100, looks like you're well on your way to getting some advice with Poppy, but I just wanted to pop in to say hello and welcome to the community. Just so you know, I've moved your discussion over to our Universal Credit section, so people can find it more easily and share their experiences :)
