    What date exactly did you report your health condition/provide your first fit note? 

    It's not paid at all during the waiting period, which is 3 full assessment periods, it's then paid from the 4th month, with first payment being the end of that month.
    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.
