    HI and welcome,

    It will depend when your assessment period is because there's a full 3 month waiting period.

    If you don't understand what the assessment period is then when did you first start your claim for UC? then i'll be able to work out when your assessment period is.

    Thanks for that. This means that you'll receive the extra LCWRA element starting in your January payment and then every month after that.
