    Title: Request for Payment of Federal Benefit by Check, EFT Waiver Form.

    OMB Number: 1530-0019.

    Form Number: FS Form 1201W, FS Form 1201W-DFAS, FS Form 1201W (SP).

    Abstract: 31 CFR part 208 requires that all Federal non-tax payments be made by electronic funds transfer (EFT). The forms are used to collect information from individuals requesting a waiver from the EFT requirement because of a mental impairment, living in a remote geographic location that does not support the use of EFT, or persons born on or before May 1, 1921. These individuals may continue to receive payment by check. However, 31 CFR part 208 requires individuals requesting one of these waiver conditions to submit a written justification that is notarized by a notary public. In order to assist individuals with this submission, Treasury has prepared waiver forms in order to collect all necessary information.
