    Hi,

    For your UC and LCWRA then you'll receive the standard allowance and the LCWRA element of £341.92 per month but this element is only paid from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you sent evidence of your health condition.

    For your ESA from the 14th week of your claim will will receive £113.55 per week but this will of course be deducted £1 for £1 from any UC entitlement.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes. Providing you're 100% sure it's LCWRA and not just LCW.
