Apportionments and End of Year Payments 2011

Apportionment payments for 2011 must be received either at the Conference office or in the lockbox at Regions Bank by January 13th 2012.  This is not a postmarked by date, but is the last day by which monies must be received in the Conference or our bank lockbox to be included in 2011 apportionments receipts.  Any payments received after that date will be applied to 2012 apportionments.  Any payments received between January 1 and January 13th must be clearly marked as to which year they are to be applied.

All apportionment payments should be accompanied by a completed Remittance Report. 
The Remittance Report is located on our website at

• Click on the “Administration” tab
• Select “Financial Services” from the list
• Click on “2011 Apportionment Giving Report Forms”
• Select one of the two versions of the Giving Report listed at the bottom of the page

Complete the Remittance Form with the following information:

• Church Name
• GCFA Number
• Preparer contact information
• Allocation amounts for each fund

Any amounts due for Ministry Protection and Health and Benefits at the end of the year will continue to show as outstanding on your statement in 2012.  To ensure proper processing of these payments and avoid errors, payments should contain the following information on the check, check stub or statement:

• Church Name
• GCFA Number
• Invoice Number (include all letters and any 0’s)
• Allocation amounts for each invoice

Also take note of the billing address for each of these types of payments.  The last 4 numbers after the zip code are different for each and very important to include to ensure your payment is processed properly.

To be included in the Florida Annual Conference “Report of 100% Churches,” 100% of 2011 apportionments must be received by January 13, 2012, and all outstanding Ministry Protection and Health and Benefits obligations must be received by December 31, 2011.
