1.1.E.125 Entitlement period

Definition

This is the period over which a recipient's entitlement will accrue. It is usually 14 days. For most recipients, their entitlement period will end 2 working days before their delivery day (1.1.D.55).

For recipients paid a social security benefit other than PPP, their entitlement period will end one working day before their delivery day.

This different treatment is necessary for current payment processing reasons.
