If the message ‘The suspension reason you selected cannot be removed manually’ displays 

  • the ‘Payment Suspension’ marker can’t be removed manually. It will be removed automatically when the appropriate change has been processed
  • select ‘OK’
  • refer the case to your Technical Advice Line Liaison Officer (TALLO).

If the message ‘The suspension reason you selected cannot be removed manually’ doesn’t display, select ‘OK’. The ‘Payment Suspension’ marker will have been removed.

If the last payment suspension reason has been removed

  • the message ‘Are you sure you wish to re-instate payments to this applicant?’ will display
