The (lcwra) element of universal credit.
Hi can someone who nos this system better than me please help me! I have been claiming universal credit since 6th February sickness part. I recently just passed my medical for (lcwra) (last month)now I do understand that you must wait 12weeks from you present them with medical evidence before they can backdate eny money that may be due. Now the part I am unsure about is what do they mean 12weeks from your medical pass?or 12weeks from your claim started? As I waited over 4months for my medical to take place it does say that if you wait more than 12weeks for your medical assessment they will backdate that also. For some reason I haven't had this money this month and the medical took place within last months assessment period so why have I not had the months bacdated money? Or will it be a simple case of haveing to wait the 12 weeks from medical pass before I get the backdated payment. Be really helpful if someone can explain this to me as I'm not good at explaining myself or takein information in unless it's really quite simple put. Sorry and thanks in advance.
