The BPS 2016 payment window will open on the 1 December 2016 and the RPA have already stated that it aims to pay 90% of claimants by the end December and 93% by the end of March 2017.

Carys Studley of Rostons comments that “there may be a number of claimants that are still yet to receive their 2015 payments and as a result of this the BPS 2016 payment may not necessarily be correct”.

If you have any concerns over your payment or would like to check it once received, then please do not hesitate to contact one of the Team at Rostons.
