    There's a 3 full month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim.
    If you reported your health condition on 23rd August 2021 then this was in the August/sept AP. Therefore your waiting period is as follows.. Sept/Oct, Oct/Nov, Nov/Dec.. LCWRA element starts from AP 20th Dec - 19th Jan with first payment being 26th Jan 2022. No backdated money is owed.
    This is assuming you're not claiming UC with a partner and there's already a LCWRA element on your claim.
