    Great news. The LCWRA element of £336 will be backdated to the 4th month of your claim starting from when you sent in your first fit/sick note. This means that if the decision's definitely been made and it's LCWRA then that will be approximately 1 year of backdated money. Check your journal, because the decision letter will be uploaded on there.

    I must admit that was a very quick decision time, from when you received the forms. I'm assuming this was your first work capability assessment?

    Welcome to the community @Kayla24:)
    I hope it doesn't take too long to receive your letter regarding payments, this will likely be uploaded to your journal.
