An application in respect of the 2017 Basic Payment Scheme/ Areas of Natural Constraints was received from the person named on 11 May 2017. Processing of this application has recently been finalised with payments scheduled to issue under both schemes in the coming days.

Administrative checks involving a number of sections within the Department take place on all GLAS claims. All cases must clear validation checks before payment can issue. Department officials are working proactively to complete the checks to allow for the issue of payments. Once this case clears validations the 2017 advance payment will be made. GLAS payments are being made on a weekly basis.
