Have you already applied?

Applications will be processed as soon as possible. 

When your application is received and processed, we will:

  • do pre-payment checks to check for false information
  • let you know the outcome of your application
  • confirm when we will make a payment

We may contact you for additional information.

Please do not contact us to chase the outcome of your application, as high volumes of these enquiries will slow the overall process for everyone.
