I was hoping someone could help me. I’ve been accepted for lcwra, I’m already on universal credit & see it takes 3months for the first lcwra first payment but can anyone tell me how much more this may be on top of my universal credit roughly? 
Kind regards

    HI and welcome,

    Great news on the LCWRA. This means that you'll receive an extra £336 per month from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you sent your first fit note. When you'll receive your first payment will depend on when you sent your first fit note and when your assessment period is.
