Hi, I was wondering if any1 has been in a similar situation to myself, I've just had a tribunal for lcwra and won, so I'm wondering how long it normally takes for this to be updated on my universal Credit account and for the backdated money to go in my account. Thank you in advance

    Hello and welcome @rcm thanks for your query :)

    As you might have seen our member @poppy123456 reply on another thread: 
    There will only be extra money if you were found to have LCWRA. After a Tribunal decision it can take anything up to 8 weeks, sometimes longer.

    I hope that's helpful for you, and if I can help with anything else in the meantime, please do say.
