EXAMPLE: Mr. Smith applies for BP on July 28, 2017. The Eligibility Specialist completes the approval on August 3, 2017. Mr. Smith is eligible for a BP payment of $95 for four days of July. Since the approval is after the payroll closing date for August, the July payment will be combined with the full monthly payment for August. Mr. Smith's first BP will be $833 ($95 from the table for July + $738 for August).
