As part of the Compensation Fund's efforts to strengthen systems of internal control the Fund will implement the Account Verification System (AVS). The purpose of the process is to ensure that monies are paid to the correct people and claims are processed and paid within a reasonable period of time.


To this end we publish the required documents and process for clients in updating banking details with the Compensation Fund.
