Hi, my name is llama74! When will she be paid the backdated amount?
My sister was assessed for UC wca and the next day received a letter on her UC account stating she was now entitled to LCWRA additional payments. If she was owed any money she would receive a letter within 7 days. Two days later she received a letter on UC account, stating how much she is owed. The backdated amounts appeared in the payments section for every month owed. The letter didn't say when she would be paid the backdated amount. My sister has asked twice on her account and called twice, no one has been able to tell her when she will be paid it, it's a substantial amount of money.
