Reporting Lost Recommends

Postby rwoodmansee » Sun Aug 08, 2010 7:46 pm

Do replaced recommends need to reported as lost or does activating a new recommend automatically cancel the old one?

I have found a few posts that deal with Lost Recommends but they don't identify a policy or proceedure for reporting recommends lost when a a new one is issued.

I am the stake clerk responsible for activating recommends. On occasion I have noticed that the old recommend was still good for another year. When I asked the stake presidency that issued the new recommend, I was told that it was to replace a lost recommend. So I need to report the old recommend as lost?

There's information on Recommends, including reporting a lost one in the Wiki. Click [url=https://tech.lds.org/wiki/index.php/Temple_recommends_%28MLS%29#Cancel.2C_reactivate.2C_or_report_lost_or_stolen_recommends]HERE[/url]

Activating a new recommend cancels the old one. A member can only have one recommend active at a time.
