    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.

    Hey @valentino, welcome to our community. I hope we can help you with any advice you might be looking for!

    We should be able to answer your question, if we just know what date you first put in your sicknote and when you usually get paid! Poppy is quite knowledgeable about benefits, but we need to know that information before we can give a proper answer. 

    I also moved this to our Universal Credit category :)

    Please check back on your journal to see exactly what date it was. Also what date do you usually receive your money each month.

    Without knowing the answers to those questions based on the limited information you gave your first payment will potentially be either Dec or Jan.
