    Good morning @joslin welcome to our great group.
    I hope your well this Thursday.
    I'm sorry i don't know the answer to your question, but i'm sure when the other members wake up one of them will know. We have some very kind members that know all the ins and outs of all the benefits.
    Have you had chance to look around the site yet?

    There's a 3 full month assessment period waiting time and the extra LCWRA element isn't paid until the 4th month after you reported your health condition/sent your first fit note.
    When it's paid from exactly will depend on the exact date you reported your health condition/sent first fit note and what date you usually receive your money each month.
    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.

    @joslin Hello there and a warm welcome to our online community, how is it going with you today?

    I hope Poppy's answer has helped you better understand the process from here on in, but if you remain unsure about anything, please do ask!

    Just to make you aware I've tweaked your thread title and moved it to our Universal Credit category to help others spot it more easily and reply.

    Take care.
