    It will depend on what date exactly you reported your health condition, providing you sent in a fit note within 7 days after this. The extra money isn't paid at all during the waiting period. It's then paid from the 4th month of your claim.

    Was this a Tribunal decision?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    If you are paid on the 27th of the month your assessment periods are the 21st to the 20th of each month.
    I'm not clear what you mean by your AP was 24th June-25th September 2020.
    When did you first report your health condition to UC and is your recent decision based on that original notification?
    From your other thread it appears that you reported the condition in October 2020. Your waiting period would then be Oct-Nov, Nov-Dec and Dec-Jan and the LCWRA element would be payable from the payment on 27th February 2021.
