Payment for LWRCA in next months pay?

Just looking for some information as the UC staff on the phone wasn't sure and well they never reply to the journal messages and received no letter as usual lol.

So you guys are our last hope, I know for a fact the claim start date is the 5th of Dec 2018. I understand it's 14 weeks to wait, so should the LWRCA be paid in April's payment? I was told "It should be, however I wouldn't bet on it" So helpful :D

    LCWRA element is paid on the 4th month starting from when you sent in your first sick/fit note. This is because there's a 3 month waiting period.
