Monthly Finance Reminder - DECEMBER


  • FLWG is seeing more and more unclaimed deposits. When any member of your unit (incl. AMO) makes a deposit at SunTrust Bank you must send Amy a FLWG Form 204 with the account numbers indicated. You must also send a copy of the deposit receipt with the unit charter number written on it. Without these documents your unit will not be credited for the deposit..

  • Review the listing of unclaimed deposits included with the monthly cash reports, and see if any of the amounts match one of your deposits over the last year. If so just send a Form 204 to FLWG/HQ to claim your deposit.
