Ongoing delays with NIS cheques
IF YOU’RE ONE of the scores of Barbadians waiting to receive a benefit payment from the National Insurance Scheme, you’ll have to wait a little longer.

And though acting NIS director Jennifer Hunte did not say when the issue would be resolved, she apologised for the inconvenience and said the situation was being diligently worked on.
Hunte explained the NIS upgraded its computer system on a phased basis from January to March this year.

This resulted in delays in the processing of claims. (SP)
