UC payment

braca Member Posts: 102 Member
Payment from UC into joint account £0-01 paid in through partners NIN ? We had recently put in change of circumstances regarding LCWRA and Carers element and just wondering payment is in regard of this.
Checked our payments for this month due on the 10th and includes Carers element and not capable of work element.
There was no message in Journal regarding payment.

    Sorry but It’s not clear exactly what you’re asking. What do you mean by this?

    If you’ve received your statement what exactly does it say on the breakdown of elements you’re entitled to?

    If you mean that you have recently reported a change in your health but the LCWRA element is not included that is because you will first have to be assessed to see if are considered to have LCWRA.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
