    You'll need to provide more information for anybody to be able to advise.
    When are your UC assessment periods and when did you first report your health condition followed by continuous Fit Notes?
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    LCWRA is paid for the fourth complete period after you report the health condition.

    You should therefore be paid the LCWRA element for October to November which is your 26th November payment. If the decision has only just been made it may not be picked up for that payment. Check your statement as soon as it is available and if LCWRA element is not included raise a payment query through your journal.

    Above assumes that you are not claiming with a partner who already receives the LCWRA element (in which case you cannot get it also).
