I have just been told that i have a limited capability for work and work related activity by the DWP, im not too sure what this entails but does this mean i get more money and what is this 3 month period?
Does it mean if i do get the extra money it is calculated from the first day i handed in my fit note but it wont be paid for 3 months..
thanks

    Hi there and welcome to the community 

    Being awarded lcwra means you will get an additional €343.63 per month on top of your uc 

    This is paid from  the 4th month following you reporting your medical condition and providing fit notes 

    If it has taken longer than this time to get the award you will get arrears 

    You no longer need to provide fit note and have no work commitments

    One. You are not entitled to the extra for the first three months.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
