A separate Certificate of Deposit (SF-219) will be prepared for the deposit of SMI
remittances. The form will be prepared and processed in accordance with the instructions
in the Recovery Manual, Section 900, except that the account symbol will be shown
as 20X8004.5. Deposits will be numbered consecutively for each fiscal year followed
by the letter S. This “S” number, while known as the certificate deposit number, is also the schedule number,
so the terms can be used interchangeably.
In addition to the assigned number, the processing center code (DIO's is 8) must be
included as part of the deposit number but preceding the fiscal year. Thus, at the
beginning of the fiscal year the first number would be 8 (processing center code)—73
(fiscal year)—1S (number assigned)—8-73-1S, 8-73-2S, etc. Upon its return, a copy
of the SF-219 will be sent by OF-41 to Fiscal Operations Branch, OA, Room 1-M-9, Annex.
The deposit number and amounts deposited should be entered in the appropriate columns
of the SMI Premium Deposit Journal (SSA-1594).
