LCWRA 1 month 1 week ago #252530

Hi, just had my letter to say I’ve got LCWRA. Was a really quick turn around. I’ve been on universal credit and supplying sick notes since May 11th. Struggled filling in the form and sent it back way late and got letter within a week. Is it right I’ll get the additional higher rate? Do you know if it will be back dated? Thank

Congratulations on the award, well done.

Yes, you will now receive the LCWRA rate another £341.92 per month.

This should be backdated from the beginning of the fourth period following your reporting yourself as unfit for work.

Thanks Gordon. The help section on this site helped a lot filling in the form, plus diagnosis from Consultant psychiatrist which my doctors were great in getting me an appointment so quick.
Can I ask what you mean by fourth period. I’ve been off work since March 13th and claimed universal credit from 11th May which they’ve had fit notes for the whole of this period.

Thanks again.

Also to add to my latest reply. Will I be able to apply for pip too. I’ve looked into it a wee bit and the anxiety, going out, socialising etc all seem to apply to me me.

Hi Ade

Yes you can apply for PIP, it is independent from claiming LCWRA for UC.

We do have a PIP self test which you can use to see if you would qualify and excellant guides to help you complete the forms. www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/personal-indep...nt-pip/pip-self-test
