Hi. I got awarded LCWRA on the 25-01-2021 and apprantly I have to wait 3 months. I asked how is it assessed and they said;

Assesment period 06-05-2021 - 05-06-2021 payment date 12-06-2021

My payment for UC is 12th of every month., my question is will I get back dated from the 25-01-2021 or get nothing at all. From my calculations it should be back dated 4 months?
