Hi thanks for all your support on here .
I just got a note on my journel that I am now lcwra group
They dont say when from though
Initally I handed in a specialist letter certificate which was accepted by the work coach who said it was fine then I filled in the wca form
Then I handed in a backdated gp certificate months later which was asked for on my journel so its a wait again all be it the last wait to see what date I can get the lcwra payments from
My clain got started in April but I was to unwell to get advice
Thanks again for your support

    Hi,

    LCWRA is paid from the 4th month of your claim from when your fit notes were dated from. Scroll down to waiting period in this link.

    Whether or not they accept the back dated fit note, is another question. I have no idea to be honest.
