ESA support group and LCWRA element
hi everyone, I was placed into the ESA support group in mid November after waiting 11 months for an assessment. I also recieve PIP. Both awarded with no problems. Could somebody tell me if UC should automatically add the LCWRA element to my claim alongside my personal allowance and housing benefit then the ESA amount is taken off my monthly UC statement. This morning I got my latest UC statement they haven’t added any LCWRA but have taken the £490 for ESA payments. I asked in my UC journal about this last week and they said they havent recieved any notifications about my ESA award but surely now they’re taking more ESA money from my UC it shows I’m in the Support Group and LCWRA element should be added. Any advice on what I should do please?
