    If the 1st November was the same date you reported your health condition then your waiting period will be Dec to March.. LCWRA starts from assessment period 29th March to 28th April and first payment will be 5th May. No LCWRA element is owed. 

    If you reported your health condition when you first claimed UC then your first payment will be 5th April. No LCWRA element is owed.
