    Hi,

    LCWRA is paid from the 4th month of your claim from when your fit notes were dated from. Scroll down to waiting period in this link.

    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.

    Whether or not they accept the back dated fit note, is another question. I have no idea to be honest.
