Once your bill is ready for payment, it might take up to 8 working days for the money to reach your account if you’re paid by BACS.
Help us process claims more quickly by waiting 8 days before contacting our customer services team about payments.
You’ll normally receive remittance advice on the payment date, unless there are problems with the postal system.
We make contract payments in the first week of the month (payment 1).
Note: the payment date stated on remittance advice slips will appear as 3 working days before you receive funds, due to additional processing time.
