edited May 2021 in Universal Credit (UC)
Morning everyone 
I handed my first sick note on the 11th January, I’ve had my assessment so if I’m awarded when would my payments start, I normally get my universal credit on the 18th of the month.
many thanks

    Yes I do ? I’m ready to appeal should I be put in lcw as I can’t physically work ? certainly not out of choice, I was gutted when I finally had to make the decision to leave my job which I absolutely loved, because I couldn’t do it anymore.

    @Tb2830 it's just from the title of the post, it made me think you wasn't... Aww it's rubbish that you had to give up a job you loved. So good luck with your claim xx
