    HI and welcome,

    I'm afraid you have been advised incorrectly. There's a 3 month waiting period for LCWRA, this means that you'll receive the extra money in the 4th complete assessment period from when you sent your first fit note. Based on that information i'm afraid there's no backdated money owed but the good news is you'll receive the extra £336 per month going forward.
