All cash remittances received in the FO must be converted to money orders or cashier's
checks. Local management will decide who purchases the money orders. A cash log must be completed for the protection of the interviewer, for the protection of the remittance
clerk if he/she is not designated to purchase the money order, and for the protection
of the designated person.
IMPORTANT: Each person who receives or handles the cash remittance will prepare an entry on
the Cash Log. The person who first receives the cash remittance (typically the interviewer)
will always prepare the cash log. There will usually be three line entries in the
cash log for the same cash receipt.
• The first line will record the cash received by the interviewer,
• the second line will record the cash received by the remittance clerk, and
• the third line will record the cash received from the remittance clerk by the person
designated to purchase money orders or cashier’s checks.
Retain the form until the subsequent year's management review has been completed.
This will assure that the log is maintained long enough to help resolve questions
regarding a cash remittance.
