    Was the 17th November the same date you reported your health condition? Did you provide a fit note within 7 days of that and continue to send them without any gaps until a decision was made on your claim?

    If you did then your waiting period will be Nov to Feb.. LCWRA starts from 17th Feb to 16th March and first payment will be 23rd March. 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.
