Faster settlement of Incomeshield claims

In June 2006, there was a backlog of Incomeshield claims. It took an average of 28 days to clear the claims in Income (compared to a service target of 7 days).

The delay were due to two factors:

- increase in volume of claims
- migrating to a new computer system

The following measures were implemented and they have contributed in speeding up the processing of the claims. We carried a once-off exercies in August to clear off the outstanding claims held back from earlier months.

The average number of days has reduced as follows:

July : 24 days
August : 20 days
September: 12 days

We expect to reach our service target of 7 days in October.
