    OR Is the 687 owed for jan -march 
    Yes, it is two months Jan-Feb and Feb-March. March-April is part of your normal April payment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Thank-you so much poppy but they havebt paid me for jan - march that's what am stating
    You said this..

    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 


    Which means they've paid you the LCWRA element from Jan to March. The £502 they mentioned is the standard allowance you receive during those 2 assessment periods.
    They owe you 2 months LCWRA element as advised above.

    Mine was dealt with over the phone I won my award at tribunal and rang as I had waited longer than expected for back pay . The dm calculated it while we were speaking and it wasn't the amount I was expecting so I queried it 

    There had been a deduction  as it showed an overpayment of child element which was not correct . This was amended and correct amount was processed and paid same day

    Arr am happy for you winning the tribunal Janer it's so stressful the whole situation isn't it 

    Hopefully my question is answered tomorrow fingers crossed 
    2 months payment seems so low considering I have been on uc since the very beginning of August although I am aware about the 3 month assessment period

    I disagree based on the information you gave. You said you reported your health condition on 6th August 2021. May i ask if you sent a fit note within 7 days of this? You need to look back on your journal and check to see exactly what the dates were.

    I reported hwalt condition 6th August an wasn't told I need to provide a sick note till September so I uploaded 1 on the 7th September when they asked xx

    This will be what the issue is. When you reported a "change of circumstances" it should have then asked you to provide a fit note within 7 days.

    It's never been a change of circumstances my health condition has always been reported from the minute I applied for some help 
    Suppose it is what it is now and there's nothing more than can be done xx

    Then it should have asked you to provide a fit note on your to do list when you first claimed. It did when I applied for UC for my daughter last year, which Is why I know.
