GN 00302.800 Followup on Census Record Requests
A followup can be made only if 45 days have elapsed from the date the request was mailed.
If there has been interim correspondence from the Bureau of the Census (see GN 00302.820) requesting additional information from the claimant, the followup may be made no sooner than 45 days from the date the required information is mailed to the Bureau of the Census.
Use this procedure in following up on census requests.

Contact the claimant to determine:
When the BC-600 was mailed, and
The amount of the fee submitted, and
Whether the claimant canceled the authorization for the DO to receive a copy.
Does the information obtained in step 2 show that followup is needed?
