    The LCWRA decision will b backdated to the date you informed them of your health condition at the start of your . The LCWRA element is payable from 4 months after that (payable on 19th September 2020).
    Backdated money will be paid separately from your normal payment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
