    HI,
    I'm assuming the letter you received told you the "we may owe you money" rather than we owe you money
    There's a 3 full month waiting period starting from when you reported your health condition. Whether they owe you any money will depend on the date you reported the health condition and the date of your assessment periods. ( or the date you usually recieve your money) 
    If they owe you money it can take a few weeks to re-calculate your statements to work out how much they owe. Once this is done you'll receive a letter on your journal.

    Then once funds are released it usually takes 3-5 working days to receive the money. If it's longer than this that the letter was put onto your journal then put a message onto your journal under the payments section and ask when the money will be paid.

    Evening
    Sorry to jump on your post I just really need some help I was wondering if anyone could help me my partner has a number of disabilities he was signed up to UC and his commitments ect were amended, they'd call him and speak to me ect as due to his issues he's unable to speak on the phone, he was asked for a sick note which his doctor wouldn't give him due to the fact his health issues have never and will never change. They took in all his health plans ect and nothing more was said. In March 2019 it came to light he should have been in a support group, so on March 19th 2019 he was sent for an assessment. Due to us moving house ect he never had one which UC decided he reason was viable and he'd been entered to another assessment which was done a week or so ago. On Saturday the decision came back he had LCW. AFTER  appealing it we got a response that the decision was over turned and he should infact have been put into LCWRA were awaiting the decion letter which should be ready by midday tomorrow.
    My question is how far will my partner be back dated. I was advised by the complaints department manager it would be back dated til at least March 19tg 2019. Can anyone advise me is this correct or how long his back date will be. All were getting told is a computer will automatically generate a oayne t if one is due.
    Thank you

    Question answered on your thread here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/83835/lwcra#latest it's not helpful to post the same questions on multiple threads because it gets really confusing.

    I couldn’t say for sure but your partner should get a letter in his uc account telling him exactly what he’s owed and how they have worked it out I received my letter a few hours after the decision letter
