As of 2nd December, farmers started to receive payments for their 2019 Basic Payment Scheme Applications
Once a payment has been made a remittance advice will be sent in the post, confirming the amount paid. Claim statements will follow at a later date, explaining how the payments have been calculated.
Claimants are reminded to remain vigilant against fraud, and should remember:
- Your bank, police or the RPA will never ask you to reveal your online password, PIN or bank account details or disclose personal information to someone you don’t know or open unknown or unexpected computer links or emails.
- If in doubt, call the organisation back, ideally on a different telephone, using a number you are familiar with or you know to be official.
If you have any queries about the amount received please call the rural team on 01285 883 740 who will be happy to advise.
