Moving from lcw to lcwra. When will I receive the extra money? Will I get any backdated payments?

Hello. 

I have been in the limited capability for work group for a few years now, I finally had my long overdue review and have been moved to the lcwra group. 

The letter on my journal doesn't say anything about any extra money, I left a note on my journal but haven't heard back yet.

Does anyone know when I'll receive the extra money? Will it be with this month's money? Also do you get anything backdated?.

Thank you

    As it was a review that was started by DWP then there's no backdated money owed. You will be paid the extra money from the assessment period in which the changes took place, so it will be in with your next payment.
