    The extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim starting from when you first reported your health condition, supported by a fit note within 7 days of this. Any gaps in your fit notes can affect the the extra money is paid from.
    How long was the gaps?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    The gap of 3 months could affect when it's paid from. It will be down to a decision maker to make the final decision.
    Before the gap what date exactly did you send the first fit note and what date do you usually receive your money each month?
