    Whether there's any money owed will depend on what date exactly you reported your health condition, supported by a fit note within 7 days this and continued to send them without any gaps until a decision was made on your WCA.
    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim.
    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.

    So if LCWRA started in April then you have the waiting period that will apply from that time. I can't tell you exactly when it will be paid from without you answering the question i asked here.
    what date exactly you reported your health condition
    Without knowing that then it will be paid from either August or September.

    That doesn’t help me, I need to know the exact date otherwise I can’t tell you exactly when it’s paid from.

    Then your waiting period is April/May, May/June, June/July... LCWRA starts from assessment period 26th July to 25th August and first payment would be 1st September.

    Money owed will be paid separately. It’s not unusual to wait a few weeks for them to recalculate your past statements to work out exactly how much they owe you.
