I was awarded LCWRA on the 16th of November, it has been applied to my statement for payment this month but I haven’t heard anything about the 3 months that I’m owed. How long do I give before contacting UC and asking?

    Money owed will be paid separately to your usual monthly money. Based on your other thread your first payment should have been September. Assuming the information you gave was correct.

    Put a note on your journal under the payment section to ask about the money that’s owed. 
    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,
    I 2as awarded LCWRA today after first declaration in September.  I found that its unclear as to whether my 3 months started in September 9r today when I received it. 
    I actually don't know what it means apart from I eventually wore out my body. Don't know if I can apply for mobility as I can't apply for PIP yet as I've been out of the country.  In fact, I don't really know about anything I can claim as I've never claimed before.  It's one fun learning curve, it feels like I'm back in college.  ;-)

    If you want to check what you are entitled to there are a few benefits calculators such as the one Turn2Us has. It's certainly one FUN learning curve. It's not an easy system to navigate at all.

    I hope you get everything you're entitled to :)
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Part of your question was answered on your thread here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/112686/hi-my-name-is-michaelculyer2#latest

    Your question about mobility, this is part of PIP, assuming you're not living in Scotland. To claim PIP you must have lived in the country for 2 out of the last 3 years so unfortunately, you won't be able to claim for that yet. https://www.gov.uk/pip/eligibility
