Apportionments and end of year payments

Apportionment payments for 2012 must be received either at the Conference office or in the lockbox at Regions Bank by Friday, January 11, 2013.

This is not a “postmarked by” date.  It is the last day by which monies must be received in the Conference or our bank lockbox to be included in 2012 apportionments receipts.  Any payments received after that date will be applied to 2013 apportionments.  Any payments received between January 1 and January 11th 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 “2012 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 2013.  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 2012 apportionments must be received by January 11, 2013, and all outstanding Ministry Protection and Health and Benefits obligations must be received by December 31, 2012.
