    What claim are you talking about?
    I know "in a timely manner" is common in legal documents but I wouldn't use it in everyday language.

    My claim was rejected with the reason given that it was submitted/filed late. I did file (the claim) on time, so the rejection is not valid.

    'My claim was rejected on the ground of being filed belatedly. However, it was actually filed on time, so the rejection was groundless.'

    That is not natural.

    Re: Within the timely manner

    "Belatedly" is not a common word. "Late" would do the job.
    I think "it" is needed before "being filed".

    Tufguy's sentence involves a legal issue. I don't find "in a timely manner" to be out of place there.
