    It would be either March or April. The exact date will depend on what date you usually receive your money each month. 
    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.

    Highly unlikely that you will be owed any LCWRA element.

    If you or a partner were receiving earnings since you provided your first fit note and you didn’t previously have the work allowance then you will be owed some money from that.

    I was getting UC before and do not have a partner, why do they make things so confusing 😪 they do not give any information on the letter if they did things would be simpler.
    Thank you for your help

    The letters are standard letters so that's why they don't give any other information. If you can tell me what date you usually receive your money each month then I can tell you when it's paid from exactly.

    That means your waiting period will be Nov/Dec, Dec/Jan, Jan/Feb.. LCWRA starts from Feb/March assessment period and first payment will be 6th April. No LCWRA element is owed.
