Hi I received a letter in my journal on the 11th Feb 2020 to say I have been accepted for lcwra. My sick note was handed in the job centre and accepted on the 9th of January 2020. When will my universal credit go up. Thank you!

    HI and welcome,

    It will depend when you started your claim for UC because there's a 3 full month assessment period waiting time. LCWRA is then paid on the 4th month of your claim.

    I will either need the exact date of when your claim started or your assessment period dates, otherwise it's not possible to help you further.

    My calculations are you will receive the extra LCWRA element in your May payment. This is because of the waiting period of 3 full assessment periods. As UC is paid in arrears the extra is paid in the 4th month.
