LCWRA - Will I get extra money and when will my first payment be?

Hi, I have just received a letter to say that I have limited capability for work and work related activity, it says on the letter that I ‘MAY’ be entitled to extra money but I thought that the extra money was guaranteed if I qualified for the LCWRA element? 

Also if I sent my first sick note in on the 15th June will I get the first payment when my universal credits is due on the 14th September or because of the extra day will it be October’s payment thats I get it on? Also will I get the 3 months back paid? 

Thank you
