In my role as chairman of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Association Part-Time Officers Welfare Group, I urge all who served in the RUC or PSNI as part-time police officers between May 1970 and October 2009 to ensure that they have their application for the gratuity payment submitted by Friday, February 4.
Neither I, nor any member of the committee, want to see anyone miss out if they fail to submit their application.
Nearly 4,000 applications have been submitted and at 5pm on February 4, the scheme closes.
The scheme is open to all those who served as part-time officers, or their widow/widower, and claim forms can also be downloaded at www.ptrgratuity.com
