    I was told on the 7th may I had been awarded LCWARA and I'm owed a sum of money, when would I receive the back payment and 1st payment?. It's all still confusing to me.

    I'm still waiting for backdated payment 7 weeks on. You should receive the disability payment in your next payment though.

    Hello @betsyD and welcome to the community. To work out how much back pay and when y our first payment of LCWRA should start, we'd need to know what your assessment periods are and when you supplied your first fit note. 
    If you scroll back on your UC journal you should be able to find when you reported your first fit note, and your assessment period dates should be at the top of any statement you've received on your online account.
