Have I received my first payment of the LCWRA component on the correct date?
Hi there. I was recently awarded LCWRA at the end of April. I was told I would have to wait 3 months from April to receive the extra component? But now I have also seen on forums that you get LCWRA component added on your 4th month that you provided your first sick note? This would be the case for me. I provided a fit note beginning of March 2021 and had my assessment in April when they awarded me LCWRA. I logged into my journal this morning and it says my payment for this month has the extra component added for the first time. Have they made a mistake? I haven’t waited 3 months since April when I was awarded LCWRA however this would be 4 months since I first provided medical evidence (my first fit note) I’m honestly very confused. If anyone could help me that would be very appreciated? Is LCWRA component added to your money 3 months from the first day you give evidence such as a fit note or once you’ve had your work assessment later on?
