Need help with this translation

Hello

My German is basic and is restricted to everyday words. Can someone tell me the exact translation of the follwoing sentence: I tried Google translator but it did not make much sense.

"Bis zur vollständigen Erfassung dieser Ermächtigung erhalten Sie Ihre Prämien- und / oder Leistungsabrechnungen mittels Einzahlungs"

I am forever grateful.

Beatrix

Re: Need help with this translation

I guess there is something missing off the end as it doesn't sound like a complete sentence to me.

But to provide a quick and dirty translation, it says:

Until we can fully ascertain this accreditation/permission, your contributions must be payed by means of (postal) payment slips.

Some of the words may have different meanings in different contexts so you might have to tell us more about the context if this translation makes no sense.

But I would guess that you are setting up some sort of automated payment system and they are telling you that they will continue to bill you postally until that is up and running.

Re: Need help with this translation

Thanks very much! Yes, it does make sense now. Just got a form to fill out for the health insurance for the direct debit set-up. Do people get these pay-slips from the actual health company i.e they will bill me until my DD is set up and from then on I have x amount of days to pay...? Is that how it works?

Thanks a zillion

Yes, normally the payment slip comes with the bill, either on the same page or on a separate sheet. You can either take it to the post office and pay in cash, or you can pay online using your e-banking account, for which you would have to copy the information and number that is printed on the slip. The payment deadline should be on the bill.
