    Credit to Moneybox for being proactive and stepping in for their customers who'd be affected:

    If your payment is missing, you need to contact your LISA provider. Moneybox, for example, told us at the time of publication that it's still waiting for the cash from HMRC to arrive (we've put this to HMRC and will update this story when we hear back). However, it adds that it's contacted all affected customers and has offered to pay bonuses from its own funds on a case-by-case basis if they're needed for urgent house purchases.
