    Was 31/5 the first date you reported your health condition/provided your first fit note?

    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.

    That means your waiting period will be… June/July, July/Aug, Aug/Sept.. LCWRA starts from assessment period 25th Sept to 24th October and first payment will be 1st November. Up to now they owe you 1 months LCWRA element. 

    Money owed will be paid separately to your usual monthly money.
