That u wont find out as u have a waiting period of 15 weeks from decision before u r entitled to payment and
That the decision will be 1 of 3

The next one is it lwc (sorry if wrong)
Then the last one where u dont have to look for work and get extra money 

So im on ic and handn sicklines in from 20th nov my date thing is 20th to 19th
On 15th dec i got my paid wages that were for 1st to 30st nov  and was 660 i no this is over what u r allowed my next wage was 300 in jan   and has been same every month since
