    There's a 3 full month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim. Whether you're owed any money will depend on what date you reported your health condition.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi Poppy123456 
    It was the 15th April 2021 that they were first informed of my health condition . But I wasn't health assessed by the DWP until 17th September 2021 So would it be from when I notified them or from when they assessed me .

    This means that your waiting period is April/May, May/June, June/July With the LCWRA element from 17th July to 16th August and first payment being 23rd August. You received the extra money on 23rd September so they owe you 1 months money of £343.64. You don't get paid the extra money at all during your waiting period.
