    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim.
    With the above information this means you reported your health condition in assessment period August/Sept.. so waiting period is Aug/Sept, Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov.. LCWRA starts from 20th Nov-19th Dec with first payment being 26th December. No backdated money is owed.
