BPS Payments Update 

The RPA were still advising that it was on track to meet its commitment to pay more than half of eligible claimants in England by the end of December. Further payment runs were expected on the 23rd and 31st December.

There has been an issue with some payments where there have been entitlement transfers. A number of RLE1s have been missed and therefore not processed. This means that claimants may have been paid based on the wrong number of entitlements. Anyone who has transferred entitlements but has not yet received confirmation should chase this up with the RPA and also check the payment received (if you have had one) extremely carefully.
