I believe it is sent as a cheque.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you posting here in the Community
Usually when there is a credit on the account it just goes towards your next bill so the price you pay is lower than usual.
If you've left Virgin Media and the credit is owing to you, a cheque will be sent out 35 days after your disconnection date.
Hope this helps.
