CIS Recipient Entitlement Periods

CIS recipients will have fixed entitlement periods (1.1.E.125)

Most of these recipients are paid 4 weekly by direct deposit to an overseas bank account. In effect, they are paid for 2 consecutive 14-day entitlement periods at a time. The amount of their 4 weekly payment is made up of the 2 instalments of pension due to them for each of the entitlement periods.
