    First payment would be either August or September 2022.
    The exact date it’s paid from will depend on what date you reported your health condition/sent your first fit note and what date you usually receive your money each month.
    It often takes quite a few weeks to pay what they owe you and it will be paid separately to your usual monthly amount. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
