Hi everyone...so I understand that as of April 2019 the UC group of LCWRA has a rise in payment to £336.20.  Does anyone know the actual date in April this applies from?.  sorry if its a daft question but all we can find is its in April.

They should go up at the start of the new financial year so next payment after 6th April, but it's all a mish mash  some benefits have risen others frozen. 


We could do with some help from you.

New UC rates did not come into force until 8th April 2019.  So the new LCWRA would therefore not be applied until the assessment end date in May.

 

So for example, those with an assessment period of 8/4/19 to 7/5/19, will receive the new LCWRA rate on their statement issued shortly after 7/5/19.

 

So for your assessment period of 5/4/19 to 4/5/19, you will have to wait until the June statement to receive the new rate.

 

This is due the statutory instrument passed by Parliament and the related Universal Credit regulations.

For your information, this is what Parliament passed.

Thank you unclebulgaria.  I didn't explain right, my assessment phase was from 5th march, my first payment was 11th April,  this May  payment is my 2nd payment of UC, but looking at the dates you point me to it will sort itself out on the system.
