The process of verifying CCS Bands is now drawing to completion. All CCS services are advised that the publication of the CCS Band approvals will begin from Thursday evening 10th December and will take a few days to fully complete before all approved Bands will show on PIP for services to check. We are therefore asking all CCS services to wait until Monday 14th December to review their band approvals before contacting online support or enquiring about appeals.
Please be advised that the next CCS Payment will be made week beginning the 14th December and will be based on the approved registrations following the publication of the CCS Bands at the end of this week.
A further update will be issued here on the PIP Homepage on Monday 14th December which will include information on the appeals process.
