LDS Family Services payments....

Postby sjstringham » Sun Sep 02, 2012 1:58 pm

We received a notification that payments to LDS Family Services for counseling would now be pulled directly out of our account. That is great, because I no longer have to write a check. However, I now have two entries in my expenses marked for fast offerings:medical, however there is no member name associated with them. Plus I have no IROPS record for them. If I had an IROPS, I could potentially assign these costs to the member for future fast offering reporting for the Bishop. But, as it stands, these two records come up every time I query fast offerings. It is very annoying/confusing. Any idea if we will be getting IROPS for these expenses in the future? Or do I just need to bug the Bishop every time I get these expenses to find out who incurred them?

This might be something you need to call LUS about, or submit a message through MLS. Do post the answer back though, because I saw the same note and was wondering about the IROPS as well.

The information I have as forwarded from my stake clerk is that the UFS will have the information for which you are looking. There is no mention of an IROP, only the UFS. I have attached the announcement document.

Is there a place on ldstech that lists all the acronyms that are used? I suppose if I don't know what an IROPS or UFS are, then I don't need to know. I figured out LUS long ago, but still have trouble with some of them.
thanks

IROP - Internal Record Of Purchase
from the attachment, I'm guessing that UFS is Unit Finance Statement.

The Wiki Glossary has many of them listed, but it's not easy to keep up with all the new ones rolling out. I just added IROP to the list.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

I hope you don't mind. I edited your addition to expand the definition.

Of course he doesn't mind -- it's a wiki :). I made an edit, too.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
