Is first payment 3 months from when you first applied, or 3 months from the health assessment?

    Hi 

    Ig is full 3 month assessment period from when the medical condition was reported and payment is 4th month 

    So not knowing these dates I would roughly say first payment would be in June 

    Feb-mar 1st waiting month 
    Mar -apr 2nd , Apr-may 3rd , first payment in June
