    Hi @JustJane - & welcome to the community. May I ask do you know when your assessment periods are, or when you normally get paid? Did you also supply continuous sick notes from 26 April?

    Your first payment will be either August or September. The exact date will depend on the answer to chiarieds questions.
    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.
