New Job and UC - Assessment Period vs. Pay Day

Any advice appreciated.

After 9 months on UC I've finally got a job! When I alert UC to this change will it immediately affect my entitlement for this month? I will not get paid until 29th September; is that when they will consider that as income, meaning that I will still get my UC payment on the 17th of this month? Or will they immediately cease payments given that I will have money coming in at some point this month?

I hope this makes sense! I didn't really know how to explain the issue!
