Lwrca approved, question about backdated payment.

Camkk2020Camkk2020 Member Posts: 6 Listener
Hi, I previously posted about my worry concerning my lwrca payment, it has finally been approved as I had provided enough information about my illness to be accepted without a health assesment. All that I'm wondering now is what date will I be backdated up to as I handed in my first fit note on 5 Oct 2018, does this mean I will be backdated until January of last year or only until I handed in my uc50 in february any help or guidance is much appreciated:)

    HI,

    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time before the LCWRA is applied. Then you receive the extra money from the 4th month of your claim. So it will depend when your assessment periods are and when you first sent evidence of Limited capability for works. Exact dates are needed to be able to help you further.

    You're answer isnt very clear, may just be me being unable to understand. I was not told anything about my 3 month assesment period I was told I am not needed to attend a health assesment as my GP and cpn had provided enough information for me to be accepted.... my uc50 had been recieved on the 28th of last month. My first ever fit note for my health condition was handed in on the 5th of October 2018

    My answer isn't clear because i didn't answer your question. I still can't help you without knowing the dates of your assessment periods. Everyone that claims UC has an assessment period each month and this lasts for 1 calendar month, every month.

    You're not making any sense to me. I'm actually getting frustrated because you're talking to me as if I should know, I've never had assessments each month I've only had appointments every now and then I've never had an assesment ever, appointments are the only things I've attended and it's usually only been to hand in a new sick note which is usually every 3 months depending on length. Thankyou for trying to help but I think I'm just going to use my cpn from now on because you've made me feel disencoursged from using this site.

    I'm sorry i've made you feel this way. I've helped thousands of people here on scope and still continue to advise others despite everything going on in the whole country right now. I also have a disability myself, yet i still continue to advise others.

    Everyone claiming UC has an assessment period. When yours are will depend on when you first started your claim for UC because the assessment period will start on the first day of your claim and run for 1 calendar month, each month.

    This link will explain what the assessment period is. https://www.turn2us.org.uk/Jargon-buster/Assessment-Period

    Without knowing the dates of your assessment periods no one can tell you how much backdated money you will receive.
