    Heya @jojo1987, welcome to the community. :) 

    Congratulations on your LCWRA award!  I believe you'll start receiving your LCWRA pay from the 4th payment cycle.  If you're due any backpay, that will go in separately and they will advise you on your journal.

    Basically it'll be your 4th UC payment date from when the first sick note was handed in. I'm not an expert on how the dates work, but I'm sure one of our super informed regulars will be able to clarify soon.

    Your waiting period will be Sept to Dec… LCWRA element starts from 6th Dec to 5th Jan and first payment will be 12th Jan. This means up to now they owe you 1 months LCWRA element. 

    Money owed will be paid separately to your usual monthly money and often takes quite a few weeks to pay it. 
    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.
