    His waiting period will be Oct/Nov, Nov/Dec, Dec/Jan… LCWRA starts from assessment period 6th Jan to 5th Feb and first payment will be 12th Feb. No LCWRA element is 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.
