I was hoping someone could help me figure out what date I would get paid my lcwra. I had my zoom call assessment on the 20th August 2021 and got my acception message on the 4th September 2021, so 16days after the assessment and I get my universal credit payments on the 16th of every month. I've checked my statement this month thinking it would show me the lcwra payment but it's not there and I'm unsure now on how long I have to wait as it's been 3 months already or if it will even show on my statement. Any information will be very much appreciated.

    Hi,
    There's a 3 full month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim, starting from when you first reported your health condition, providing you sent your fit note within 7 days and continued to send them with no breaks.
    If you get paid on the 16th then your assessment periods are from 10th to 9th of each month. Without knowing when you reported your health condition it's not possible to answer your question.
    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.

    Thanks for your response. And I don't know if this helps alittle more but I told my work coach about my health the 1st of June and sent her a sick note on the 24th July and then I sent off my limited capability to work on the 1st August, had my assignment on the 20th August and got accepted on the 4th September. I hope that info helps abit more and if so does that mean I might not get paid this month but next month.

    When you report a health condition you should do this through your journal and then send a fit note within 7 days of that.
    As you didn't send your fit note until 24th July which would be in your August/September assessment period (AP). The waiting period is as follows. Aug/Sept, Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov LCWRA element starts from AP dated 10th November to 9th December with first payment on 16th December and every month after this.
