hello. I’m in the UK

I posted my first fit note on March 27th 2021 and just had my award posted on the 8th September. I don’t really understand this system so does anyone know if I’ll have any back pay and when will my first payment be? 

My assessment dates are: 14th - 13th of each month and I get paid on the 20th

    Your 1st full assessment periods will be April to May,  then may to June and June to July so first payment would be due in your August payment so you should be owed 1 month back pay . You should get your first payment in your Sept uc payment backpay will be paid separately

    Your 3 waiting assessment periods will be may to June,  June to July and July to Aug so first payment will be in sept if it is all processed in time which it may not be with the decision only just having been made 

    If not it will be paid in Oct uc payment
