Total number of applications

Some applications require more detailed expertise. These are, for example, applications involving business activities. These applications are routed internally to the right place and the processing time for these applications may differ from the above, depending on the situation.

What affects the processing time?

The processing time is the time it takes from the date of receipt of the application to the date of the decision or payment. After that, it takes a further two working days for the money to be transferred.

The processing time is affected by the type of application, the additional information required and the number of applications per day. As the situation is constantly evolving, it is not possible to give an exact processing time for an individual application in advance.

You can find out more about the number of working days that affect the processing times and the deferral of payment in our database.
