    It starts from today and will apply from the last day of your assessment period. I note that your partner has LCWRA so your AET would be set as a single person so your earnings threshold would need to be at least £892/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.
