    Hi,

    If you're given LCWRA then it's paid from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you sent in your first fit note.

    If you're given LCW then your money will stay the same.

    Hi @smithd,

    The extra amount for being placed in the LCWRA group is currently £336.20 per month.
    I hope you get a positive outcome from the assessment, let us know how you get on.
