The above named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1st October 2015.

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 minimise delays in payments. Once this case clears validations the 2017 advance payment will be made. GLAS payments are being made on a weekly basis. The Department has been in contact with the applicant directly to ensure that they are aware of the current status.
