    It’s not paid at all during the waiting period, which is 3 full assessment periods starting from when you provided your first fit note.

    What date exactly did you provide 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.

    Was this your first work capability assessment or did you have one prior to this? If you did, what was the decision of that assessment?

    If this was the first assessment then I will need to know the exact date you provided your first fit note. You can check back on your journal to see what the date was.
