    You only get extra money for the fourth full assessment period after you report your health condition. If your first Fit Note was June 1st 2021 you will not be due any extra money until October or November payment depending on what dates your UC assessment periods run.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    There's nothing to backdate because as calcotti has advised there's a waiting period and it's not paid during this time.
