    Did they find you to have LCWRA or LCW?

    Then if the decision was definitely Limited Capability for Work Related Activity (LCWRA) then the extra money will be payable from either Feb or March 2022. Providing you sent a fit note within 7 days of reporting your health condition, providing you continued to send the fit notes without any gaps until a decision was made on your WCA.

    Has the LCWRA element been included in your statements since the decision was made?

    No, it’s not normal to be waiting this long. Put a message on your journal under the payment section and ask about the money they owe you for the LCWRA element.

    It sounds really frustrating that she has never replied to your messages @lucky1. Hopefully, you will receive a response soon. 

    If not, is there a point of contact for an escalated request for a response? Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can do anything else to support you  :)
