BRIDGING PAYMENTS TO UNPAID CLAIMANTS
Posted on 28 March 2018

If you have not yet received your Basic Payment for 2017, bridging payments are due to be made on 4th April and should arrive in bank accounts from 6th April. Bridging payments will be based on 75% of the estimated BPS 2017 claim value. If you have not been paid and are expecting a bridging payment, a letter or an email should have been sent to you on Monday (26th March). If the RPA do not have an email for you, it will be sent via letter. As system payments are still being made, this may mean that you could receive a bridging payment letter but your payment may be made by the system in the meantime.
