LCWRA Back pay

janer1967janer1967 Member Posts: 9,340 Disability Gamechanger
Hi all 
Just wondered if somebody could help me. I went to tribunal 5 weeks ago and was awarded LCWRA. 
My work coach contacted me 2 weeks after tribunal to say she no longer needed to make contact due to the award. I have also had my first payment of the £328 in my last universal credit payment. However I haunt had an award letter yet or details of any back pay. I know it can take while but as they have made payment and my work coach is aware should I contact dwp about my back pay

    Hi,

    Contact DWP/UC, they are the only ones that can tell you when to expect any money owed.

    Thanks poppy 
    I know they are the only ones who can tell me but just wondered if it was too soon to be contacting them and going through the agony of listening to that on hold tune for so long lol

    It can take 8 weeks to receive any backpay owed.
