    THE LCWRA element will be included in the calculation of your maximum UC entitlement along with all the other elements. The actual UC payment you receive will depend on your other household income. Any deductions are applied to the whole award (not to different bits of it).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
