Checks Re-ordering

Postby cchang » Mon Jul 09, 2018 7:36 am

We ran out of checks and I am looking to re-order some more. How do we re-order checks? Also, is there a way to find out which check numbering is next on the order? For example, the last check number #850 was submitted so should the next check order number start at #851? Who could verify this is correct or do we specify this during order?

You do not need to order blank check stock. Once your supply of check stock reaches 50 or fewer blank checks, blank check stock is automatically ordered and sent to your unit.

Because checks should have been sent automatically to your unit already, I would do two things.

Ask your bishop if he has received a box of checks. They should have been sent to his mailing address. If he has not received them, call the Global Service Center and ask for the Finance Department. They will be able to see when or if the new supply of blank check stock has been sent, and they will be able to send a supply if something has happened.

Interesting that they are automatically ordered if you fall below 50 in stock. We haven't received any and if my memory serves correct, we did have some in stock. In the event the checks were stolen, what do I need to do in this case for all remaining unused check numbers that were stolen? Can I call the Global Service Center to verify what was actually received, used and void any that were stolen and reorder them?

If you believe check stock has been stolen or is missing and cannot be found, you should contact the GSC immediately. They will connect you to the Finance Department who will give you further instructions.

Make sure you and another member of the bishopric have conducted a thorough search of the clerk's office for the missing check stock. It should have been locked up in the file cabinet.

You might want to take a look at how many checks you write. Odds are, 50 checks may be quite some time ago. Odds are, they were received and forgotten about.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

I called Global Services and they said the next batch was supposedly automatically sent back in Dec. at which time we may have been below 50 checks. They couldn't confirm if it was actually automatically sent since it was 120 days ago and they can't confirm if it was actually received by our Branch President. We had those next batch of checks stop payment for now and sent the next batch after that. The good thing is that the batch check numbers all match up so there were no missing or stolen checks.
