    That means your waiting period will be April/May, May/June, June/July.. LCWRA starts from assessment period 6th July to 5th August and first payment will be 12th August. No LCWRA element is owed.

    My advice assumes you’re not claiming UC with a partner that already receives this element. And also assumes there were no gaps in your fit notes.
