3 weeks alright. I will update here if I hear anything by next weekend.
Apologies everyone for causing the confusion, but I forgot to add that employer misinformed us that 100% will be paid. The contract actually says "full pay minus the illness benefit for the period" under sick leave section. I think officer wasn't aware of this and paid her 100% initially. However, we are told clearly that it's going to be deducted at her next pay.
That's why I need to chase this illness benefit.
We didn't apply for Illness benefit in the beginning of sickness as we also thought it would be illegal to actually get more money for sitting at home.

Let us know how you get on.
I would like to know if they really pay you something- since you got paid 100% by your employer during the time of the illness. The possibility to get a "double pay" is fascinating.
