    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 would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    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.
