Creating and requesting an Interim Settlement Pack
An interim settlement is an optional part payment paid prior to 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 allowed.
Once an interim payment has been received, the claim will return to Start of stage 2.1, so that you can ask for a further Interim payment by pressing the button Interim Payment needed. If no further Interim payment is required, you need to press the button Interim 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.
