Hi ,I've recently been informed that I've been successful with my application for lcwra by a message posted on my journal on the 25th November, I had my assessment over the telephone on the 9th November. I know there's a 3 month waiting period before I receive my first payment but I'm confused about the date the 3 month waiting period starts, my first sick note was on the 1st September and the second was 25th September and the third sick note was 20th November, is this enough information for you to tell when I might get my first lcwra payment, thank you .

    First payment will be either Jan or Feb 2024. The exact date will depend what date you usually receive your money each month. 

    Either way there’s no LCWRA element owed to you. 
    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.

    LCWRA is part of UC so yes on the same date and it increases your maximum entitlement by £390.06/month. 

    Your waiting period is Oct to Jan… LCWRA starts from assessment period 28th Jan to 27th Feb and first payment is 4th March. 

    This is assuming you’re not claiming UC with a partner that already receives this element on your claim.

    Their extra money for the LCWRA element isnt paid until 4th March 2024, so a while to wait yet.
