    LCWRA is part of UC and will be paid in with your usual UC payment each month. 

    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time for the extra money. It's then paid from the 4th month after you provided your first fit note, with first payment being the end of that 4th month. It's not paid at all during the waiting period. 

    Can you tell me please 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.

    Hiya @manir81 and welcome to the community!  

    I can see Poppy is already helping you get your head around the LCWRA times, but I wanted to just pop in and say a quick hello. :)

    I've moved your post to the UC category, so more people will be able to find it if needed. I hope that's ok.
