    You said " you sent your sick notes in August." Were there any gaps in those fit notes at all? You are supposed to continue to send them without any gaps until a decision is made on your claim.

    If there were no gaps then the waiting period starts from when you reported your health condition, provided by a fit note within 7 days of that.
    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.

    Gaps can affect when the extra money is paid from. What dates exactly were that gap?

    Hey there @onmyown and welcome to the community.

    I can see you're already getting some help from our lovely regulars, but I just wanted to drop in and say hi.

    I'm going to move your post to the Universal credit category so more people can see it, I hope that's ok?

    Hello, I really need help working out my payment date for LCWRA . My first fitnote was accepted on the 31st of August. I received the letter on the 25th of nov telling me of the award. My assessment period runs from the 1st to the 30th or 31st depending what month it is and I get paid of the 7th of each money. I was hoping it would be paid in with Januarys UC but its not in my payment statement. Will it be Feb? I'm really anxious about this and any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
