AF2s now processed more quickly

PUBLISHED February 4, 2013

600 redeterminations cleared every week.

We have reduced the number of AF2s waiting to be processed by over 33% - from a peak of around 6,600 at the end of November.

We now clear more than 600 redeterminations every week and hope to bring the processing time back to six weeks by April.

Refocusing on AF2 processing work was possible following the progress on our priority to deal with AF1 initial claims more quickly.  The majority are now processed within five weeks.
