13 August 2008 - Ref 42/08
Latest figures, published today, show that the total value of payments made under the 2007 Single Payment Scheme (SPS) is £1.446 billion which is 99.7% of the estimated total fund of £1.45 billion.
A total of 104,044 customers ( 97.5%) have received a full SPS payment. Some 2400 claims from the estimated total claimant population of 106,700 have been processed but resulted in no payment being due. Of those cases where payment is yet to be made, 62 are complex cases involving probate, business partnership changes and domestic issues.
RPA is continuing to validate the remaining claims as quickly as possible.
