i-movo – Department of Work & Pensions Payment Exceptions Service

Share this post

i-movo’s Secure Digital Voucher system combined with PayPoint’s 29,000 strong network of stores across the UK has now been implemented by the Department of Work & Pensions. This new Payment Exceptions Service (PES) is for customers unable to use standard banking products.

Customers are receiving payment vouchers for a range of benefits, distributed by email, SMS or encoded to plastic cards. The vouchers are then processed in any of PayPoint’s 29,000 store network, which is more extensive than all banks, supermarkets and Post Offices combined. A similar system to PES, currently used by over 100 UK Local Authorities and Service Providers has been in operation since 2013.

The project team from DWP, PayPoint & i-movo implemented the new system on schedule and PES became fully operational on 01 April 2018 as planned. Rick Green, Commercial Manager for the DWP’s Corporate Banking & Methods of Payment Group commented that: “Although early in the contract duration, the new Payment Exceptions Service provided by i-movo is fully operational and meeting or exceeding our expectations despite the aggressive implementation timescales all parties have had to work to.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
