    Hello @dropme125. There is a 3 month wait period for LCWRA to be put into payment, but that shouldn't take you to May.

    Is November when you handed in your first fit note to Universal Credit? Do you know what the exact date was and do you know your assessment periods?
    With that information I could help calculate when your payment is supposed to begin.
