Customers whose claims remain unpaid in more than one year are included in the data for each of the relevant years. The causes of delayed payments are predominantly the granting of probate on customers' estates and other legal reasons.
Data for 2008 have not been included in the table because claim validation is still taking place for this scheme year. At 13 February, 95,936 of an estimated 106,500 customers have received over £1.374 billion of an estimated fund of £1.63 billion. RPA will continue to update the performance on its website.
