The Previous Payment Predicament
Previously, recipients of the Benazir Income Support Program had to endure long waiting times at Cash Centers and PCOs (Public Call Offices) to collect their aid money. The arduous hours spent in lines were not only inconvenient but also an impediment to the program’s objective of providing financial relief to women in need.
The New and Improved BISP Payment Method
The BISP authorities recognized the need for a more accessible and efficient payment method. Consequently, they have partnered with HBL to offer a convenient solution. Now, beneficiaries can withdraw their BISP aid from any HBL ATM, eliminating the need to queue up at crowded centers.
Key Highlights of the New Method
Increased Assistance Amount
The recent update has raised the assistance amount from Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 9,000, providing a more substantial lifeline for struggling households.
With HBL ATMs scattered across the country, beneficiaries can access their funds at any time of the day, 24/7. This flexibility ensures that women can collect their aid when it suits them best.
The process is designed to be straightforward, making it accessible to all. Here are the simple steps to withdraw your BISP payment from an HBL ATM:
Receive Money Message
When you receive a money message from 8171, indicating that your BISP payment is ready for withdrawal, it’s time to head to your nearest HBL Bank ATM.
Upon reaching the ATM, select the option to scan your thumb as shown in the picture. This biometric verification ensures secure access to your funds.
Apart from HBL ATMs, HBL E-Connect Shops have also been made available for BISP payment disbursement. This diversification of payment points aims to reach beneficiaries even in remote areas, ensuring that aid is delivered promptly.
The new method of BISP payment, in collaboration with HBL, marks a significant step towards providing timely and accessible financial assistance to deserving women. With the increase in aid and the convenience of HBL ATMs, the government is working diligently to alleviate the financial burdens faced by vulnerable households. By simplifying the payment process, BISP ensures that aid reaches those who need it most without unnecessary hassles.
