Missionary Mobile Devices

Postby finance4 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 12:13 pm

When do you usually set-up the mobile devices account for new missionaries?

I believe it's all handled by the Missionary Department. Nothing is done at the local (ward/stake) level.

The account is set up and later removed by Church headquarters for missionaries called to missions that are using mobile devices.

Ah, now I understand the question - when is the MLS financial account to fund the missionary device set up? It is done by CHQ, but I'm not sure of the timing.

The accounts are usually set up one month prior to the month in which the missionary reports to the MTC.

Yes. The first payment should have been already deducted from his or her account (at the start of June). Was another ward involved in the application process? If so, then that ward may have been listed as the financially responsible ward. But regardless of the reason, you'll need to talk to local unit support to get it resolved.

I was just going to suggest that. By default, the responsible ward is the one that submitted papers. It does NOT automatically move when the member or the member's parents move. That has to be arranged.
