    What is your AP and the date you first provided a fit note to UC?

    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money isn't paid until the end of the 4th month, after you reported your health condition/sent your first fit note. It's not paid at all during the waiting time.
    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.
