I'm going to be made BR soon and I just wanted to clear something up regarding salary payments and IPA agreements.
Is it true that after seeing the OR for your initial meeting that you then have 3 months before the IPA starts? I've heard people say it but I'm not sure if that was just a matter of timing for them or if it's official practice?
If that's the case - are the 3 months salary payments in that period mine to keep? It seems a little too good to be true?
I am on a good salary and if this is the case then 3 months wages will allow me to really get my life back on track financially and set me up for the 3 years of IPA payments that I am facing.
Thanks for any advice.
