When a payee or check holder has lost a National Treasury check, the check loss reporting and stop-payment procedures are as follows:
1.If the check issue date has not exceeded one year:
A.The payee or check holder shall apply to an agent institution of the National Treasury for loss reporting and stop-payment by filling out the Notification of Treasury Check Loss Report and Stop-Payment and Application for Treasury Check Loss.
B.After the agent institution of the National Treasury has confirmed that the check has not been cashed and completed loss reporting and stop-payment, the institution will send a letter to the NTA for reference with the copy of the Notification of Treasury Check Loss Report and Stop-Payment.
2.If the check issue date exceeds one year but has not yet been remitted to the National Treasury:
A.The payee or check holder shall fill out an Application for Treasury Check Loss Report and Stop Payment with the signature of an approved guarantor. The identification documents of the applicant and guarantor shall be included in the letter sent to the NTA for Treasury check loss reporting and stop-payment.
B.The payee or check holder who is a government agency or public enterprise applies for Treasury check loss reporting and stop-payment is exempt from requiring a guarantor, but should indicate on the Application for Treasury Check Loss Report and Stop Payment that, “should any complications arise, this agency (institution) shall take responsibility for this matter”. The agency should affix its seals to the application, and certify the application by submitting it to the supervising agency if necessary.
3.In the case that a Treasury check whose “Non-endorsable” mark has been cancelled is lost, the applicant should apply to a court for public summons procedures.
