First LCWRA payment

bengy85 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi after some help as to when I will start to get the LCWRA element added to my UC
I received notification on 6th march 2024 that I had been awarded LCWRA (1st fit note was 29 Nov)
 I’ve just viewed march statement AP 15 Feb-14 Mar and it’s not included. Am I correct in thinking it’ll start to be included from next AP (Mar-Apr)?

    Waiting period is Dec to March.. LCWRA starts from 15th March to 14th April and first payment will be 21st April. No LCWRA element is owed.

    This is assuming there were no gaps in your fit notes and you’re not claiming UC with a partner that already receives this element on your claim. 
    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.
