    Hi @DVFGNNZB. Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you at the moment?

    What a great question you have asked! Unfortunately, this is not an area of my expertise. This means I am hoping @poppy123456 or Calcotti can respond to you soon. 

    In the meantime, I just wanted to respond to let you know I hear you, have seen your post and I am hoping you receive your first payment soon. 

    Also, congratulations on being awarded LCWRA - I bet that was a relief. Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can do anything else to support you.

    We are all here for you and listening to you. Take care for now and we will look forward to, hopefully, hearing from you again soon  :)

    You reported health condition on 18/08/22.
    Three months later is 18/11/22.
    The first AP after that is 2nd Dec to 3rd January so you should get LCWRA included in your January payment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
