Creating and requesting an Interim Settlement Pack
An interim settlement is an optional part payment paid before a settlement being made.
The portal allows you to make more than one Interim Payment request. Please refer to the relevant protocol for when this is permitted.
Once an interim payment has been received, the claim will return to Start of stage 2.1, so that you can ask for further Interim payment by pressing the button ‘Interim payment needed’. If no further Interim payment is required, you need to press the Interim button Payment not needed, which will then move the claim on to Stage 2
It applies to claims made for those aged 18 years and above at the time the claim is submitted.
Steps to requesting an Interim Settlement
On the Interim Payment Necessity page at ‘Start of stage 2.1’, select the ‘Interim payment needed’ button as seen below.
When completing the form, there is the option to include one or more medical reports as part of the interim settlement pack.
