Block fees phase 2 online billing implementation

Posted on: Tuesday, May 24, 2011

On May 30, 2011, Legal Aid Ontario(LAO) will implement the new portal billing system for block fees phase 2 accounts. As part of this implementation, and to ensure the system is functioning effectively, LAO staff will review your submitted phase 1 and phase 2 block fee accounts. During this process, you will be unable to view the status of your block fee accounts on the “Review my Account Status” tab for two to three business days after your account has been submitted.

Once validation is complete, your block fee accounts will appear on the “Review my Account Status” tab. Please note that every effort will be made to ensure this process does not affect LAO’s commitment to pay block fee accounts between 21 and 25 days from date of receipt.
