    Unless there is good reason to believe that the claim was NOT submitted on the Sunday, seems pretty straight forward to me. Claim is counted as being received on Sunday (subject to all other rules / designated office etc).

    Regards

    i think it is usually referred to as ‘on the mat’, similar scenario arises for authorities if they close between xmas and new year.

    I’d go with the “on the mat” approach. If its there when the office opens on monday then it is deemed to have been rec’d over the wekend.

    Any item of mail ‘on the mat’ on a Monday morning is deemed by my authority to have been recieved on the Sunday.

    lynn2203 –

    Put the argument another way, how can you prove they didn’t post it through the door on Sunday? If there is a doubt, the benefit of that doubt should be given to the claimant, no?

    You do not have to worry whether or not the claim or document was in fact delivered on Monday morning because following R(SB)8-89 that where the office is closed and documents can not be delivered, the time limits are extended to end on the next day the office is open
