All LTFT payments are paid to the trust quarterly via the LDA. Payments are made pro-rata across the year and not in one lump sum. Payments will be adjusted each quarter and a detailed breakdown on how LTFT payments are made to the trust are confirmed in the LDA pack that is sent to the trust each quarter.
