    If you reported your health condition when you first claimed UC in June and you provided details of your fit note within 7 days of that then this will be when the waiting period starts from. 

    Your first payment will be either Oct or Nov 2023. 

    The exact date will depend on what dates your assessment periods cover or what date you usually receive your money each month and what date you reported your health condition/provided details of your first fit note. 
    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.
