The above named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received all payments in respect of scheme years 2016.

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. In this case an issue arose in relation to the participant's BPS application. Department officials are working to resolve this issue. It is expected to be resolved shortly. Once this case clears validations the 2017 advance payment will be processed. GLAS payments are issuing on a weekly basis.
