GN 02403.016 Processing Returned Emergency Advance Payments and Immediate Payments--Procedure

When a Third party Draft Emergency Advanced Payment or Immediate Payment is returned unendorsed to the field office, proceed as follows:

  • Enter the item into DMS, coded as an unendorsed returned benefit check, and give the client the receipt. The item will appear on the FODRL.

  • Stamp the draft non-negotiable and cut off the signature in the lower right corner

  • Attach the draft to the FODRL for review by the remittance supervisor at the end of the day.

  • File the original voided draft with the current Monthly Accountability Report (MAR) supporting documents after tearing or cutting off the authorized signature portion of the draft.

  • NOTE: The FO could have a Daily Activity Report, but the certified MAR is faxed to the Office of Finance.

  • Retain the draft copy as long as the FO keeps the MAR, and then destroy it.
