Missionary Check into multiple accounts?

Postby surf40 » Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:03 am

The Stake is going to be writing our ward a check this Sunday to the Ward Missionary Fund, giving us a much needed infusion of money to cover the missionaries we have out.

Can the Financial Clerk split that check while entering it into MLS into the various individual missionary accounts, or does all of it have to go to one account (and then transfer after to cover the other accounts?)

A check can be deposited into multiple subcategories; the financial clerk simply selects each subcategory and specifies the amount for that subcategory.

Either method works fine, in my book. But if one method is more appealing on your end then that's fine too. If, for some reason, one of the missionary subcategories has a surplus when that missionary comes home then you'll want to transfer that excess back into the main category or to some other missionary's subcategory. So, transfers might not be completely avoided. But transfers aren't so bad.
