    That means your assessment periods are 6th-5th of each month. Your waiting period will be Aug/sept, Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov. LCWRA would start from AP 6th Nov/5th Dec with first payment being 12th Dec but only if found to have LCWRA. 

    As previously advised above, from 12th December.
    It can often take a few weeks to pay any money that's owed. They first have to recalculate your past statements so they can work out exactly how much is owed. Once this is done you'll receive a letter on your journal and then the money will be sent to your bank, which is then take 3-5 working days. Money owed will be paid separately to your usual payment.

    Hi @danixxx yes as long as you protect/remove any personal information that can be used to identify you, you are welcome to share any sections of the letter that are causing confusion.

    Weve decided your entitled to universal credit of £1189.58 from 06 jan to march 2022 
    This is because you are entitled to the lcwra 
    Weve already paid you universl credit of £502 from jan 6th to march 2022 
    We owe you £687.26 thus is the amount left after taking away universal credit weve already paid you

    Reason am confused as I reported health condition in August 
    Also they state they already paid me £502 from jan to march I haven't received that amount from them ??

    That doesn't sound right to me. Based on the information you gave the LCWRA element is payable from 12th December 2021.
    Did you send in fit notes for the whole time without any gaps?

    Yes, you would have received the Standard element for Jan/March, which was about £251(under 25) for each month.

    They state there only paying me £687 ? Shouldn't it be £1750 including April payment on the 12th

    They've said the LCWRA element is payable from 6th January. So, they've paid you for 6th Jan - 5th March, which is 2 assessment periods.
    They owe you from 6th November to 5 January, which is 2 assessment periods.
    Put a note onto your journal under the payment section and tell them that you believe the calculation is incorrect.
    Say something like. i reported my health condition on X date and continued to send fit notes without any gaps for the whole time until a decision was made on the WCA. I believe the LCWRA element is payable from 6th November which means i'm owed 2 more months of LCWRA element.

    No, you don't include the April LCWRA element because you will receive that in your usual payment on the 12th April.
