Rent arrears and LCWRA

Hello everyone,
I would really appreciate your input.
I was in rent arrears when and these were under control by a managed payment every month.
Unfortunately I fell ill in 2018 and it took me a year and a half to get my rightful benefits sorted out.
During my illness I took advice from CAB and registered myself bankrupt as I had other debts too.
I was then put into a LCWRA group and was awarded a back payment.
I thought my owed rent would be cleared, I went bankrupt in Nov 2018
I was then surprised that UC decided to pay my landlord £1,209.16 of my awarded money in May 2019
I have been trying to get to the bottom of this since then.
This is causing me additional stress and wonder if anyone can advice please?
It would-be greatly appreciated
Kind regards
