    Hi there

    They pay in arrears. What they do is pay you the amount they owe you from the date of your application to the date of the decision, then every 4 weeks thereafter.


    Application date 01/02/10
    Decision date 19/03/10
    First Payment: 01/02/10 to 19/03/10 would be made the following week
    Next Payment: 20/03/10 to 17/04/10 would be made on 17th or thereabouts
    Next Payment: 18/04/10 to 15/05/10 would be made on 15th or thereabouts

    Hope this helps.
    In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry and was widely regarded as a bad move.
