    You do not get paper copies. Any letters are uploaded as pdf documents which you can access through your journal.
    As regards breakdown of the award your monthly statement shows how the UC is calculated. If you mean do they show you how they determined you have LCWRA then the answer is no.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
