    There’s a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is then paid from the 4th month of your claim.
    When it’s paid from will depend on when you reported your health condition and the dates of your assessment periods, or what date you usually receive you payments. Without knowing those exact dates it’s impossible to tell you exactly when it’s paid from but it will be either May or June.

    Hello and welcome to the community @ppt1, it's nice to see you join and I hope you are well this Saturday morning!

    It seems as though it has been a very long process for you since the start of last year, you must be relieved to have been awarded LCWRA. I hope the above reply has been helpful regarding backpayments, but you also might find it useful to read our Universal Credit category which contains related discussions from other members. 

    I look forward to seeing you get involved around the community, I would recommend paying a visit to the virtual coffee lounge to get involved with some of the many games.
