 * Claims submitted after the ‘Claims due date’ will not be paid until the ‘Late claim payment’ date at the earliest.

** We will not accept any claims submitted after the ‘Latest submission’ date. You will not be paid and you may be subject to 'clawback' for any funding paid for that term. 

If your claim is rejected it is vital that you action it immediately by correcting and re-submitting the amended version of your claim. Otherwise your payment will be delayed.

Exceptional Adjustments

If you have made an error on your FEE claim, you can make a claim for an Exceptional Adjustment. Errors on advance claims can be corrected on the final claim.
