Hi, I’m currently on uc under lcwra, I started a job last week and really didn’t like it all I’m kicking myself as now I’m worried I’ve messed up my claim, the job itself was not contradicting to my claim I’m just concerned I will not get my payment on October 15th now, I worked 3 days in total thank you.

    You've already be assessed as having LCWRA so quiting your job will not affect your UC entitlement. As you also have the work allowance then you can earn up to £293 per month if you rent or £515 if you don't without seeing any deductions from your UC payments.
    If you've quit work then you need to report the changes on your journal but as advised is won't affect your claim. You'll receive your payment as normal.
