Hi I'm Julie44! Should I appeal the start date of my LCWRA? Would I get my payment while appealing?
I started claiming universal credit in July 2018 I handed sick notes in straightaway and applied for LCW they said no twice so in December it went to a tribunal and I got LCW But thought I would get LCWRA as my judges letter was brilliant anyway my condition got worse in September last year so I did a change of circumstances its on my journal from then that I'M LIMITED FOR WORK AND LOOKING FOR WORK... then I got another journal entry saying it would be actioned by my December 20 20 pay date..... No this didn't happen... Then I was told I got to have a over phone medical.... This was supposed to be on 1st Feb this Yr no call happened I got a letter on the 10th saying the call on the 1st was postponed to the 19th Feb I got a call saying it cudnt happen on that day so then it finally happened on 16th March I got awarded LCWRA on the 18th and was told I should get back pay from wen I very first gave them medical proof back in July 2018.... Well I was so excited thinking I was getting quite alot of money..... NOOOO. I'm not owed anything and my first LCWRA payment isn't til May.even tho iv got it in my journal that it wud be actioned by April pay date ..... Now should I appeal the start date or not n will I still get the LCWRA payment whilst I'm appealing I been given so much false information it's crazy
