Access to Work customers have 9 months within which to submit their request for payment, once costs have been incurred. Access to Work aim for customers to be paid within 10 days of receipt of claims and all supporting evidence.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide details of average processing times for payments to support workers as we do not hold this data.
