 I claim u c. I went sick in june with heart failure .i was in hospital.i provided my  work with sick notes but didn't receive any sick pay from them or statutory sick pay as I only worked part time. I provided sick notes for 4 months to my company  but was sacked after this period because I couldn't tell them when I would be well enough to return to work.in all this time I just received basic uc entitlement. In October I  applied to uc for disability. I filled out form uc50 .I am still waiting for assessment.if I get this will it be back dated to when I first went sick as I read that I would be entitled to it after 28 days of being sick or from when i first filled out the forms.
