    If you were found to have LCWRA then this will increase your maximum UC entitlement by £390.06/month from the 4th month after you provided your first fit note. 

    I'm not sure what the £300 refers to exactly. 

    Did you request the Mandatory reconsideration for your work capability assessment? I see form a previous thread you were found fit for work. 
    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.

    I don't know what that £300 was related to. What was the actual decision of the work capability assessment. Was it Limited Capability for Work? (LCW)  Or Limited Capability For Work Related Activity? (LCWRA) Please double check the decision letter to see exactly what it says. 

    You will only be entitled to extra money if the decision was LCWRA.

    Hello @jac1poppy2 You can always pop a message on your journal to ask if it is a one-off payment :)
