    Likely that you will be treated as having reported your health condition in October. There is then a three month waiting period which means the LCWRA element would be payable from February (exact timing depends on Fit Note dates and dates of your monthly UC assessment periods). 
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    You should have received a message on your journal reminding you that your fit note was about to expire.
