Help understanding limited capability for work and work related activities
Hi everyone I’m new here and just looking for some advice. I was working up until April this year (2021) and was then unable to to a health condition. I then provided a fit note to my universal credit journal on the 31st of may 2021. My work coach advised I complete a work capability assessment, on the 28thnif august I had a letter stating they had decided I had limited capability for work and work related activity after having my phone assessment. It says I could be entitled to extra money and it would be awarded 3 months after I gave evidence. So when would I be looking to receive a payment? Does anyone know how much the monthly payment is and is this three months after I first provided a fit note or three months after I heard back with their decision? Sorry for the long post ?
