A Bad Check Form should be submitted if a check deposited into a troop or service unit bank account bounces, so the troop or service unit can receive reimbursement for the amount of the check and any fees associated. The bank may refer to this as a chargeback or returned check. The Bad Check Form can be completed by any registered volunteer who has access to the troop or service unit bank account.
All checks must be deposited into the troop bank account within 30 days from the date the check was written. If a troop received a chargeback or returned check, they must submit a Bad Check Form within 30 days of receiving the chargeback or returned check, otherwise the troop or service unit will not be reimbursed. Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa will also not reimburse a troop or service unit for a check that is more than 90 days old.
Please view our Bad Check FAQ for more information on what to do if your troop or service unit receives a bad check in payment during the Product Programs. After reviewing this FAQ and gathering the related documents, fill out the Bad Check Form below.
In addition to completing the Bad Check Form, be sure to mail all returned checks to the Des Moines Leadership Center at 10715 Hickman Road, Des Moines, IA 50322.
