Money Order Imprinter Operating Instructions
than blocks of 100, then you and the custodian must verify each money order by serial number. Do  not  open  a  sealed  package  (100)  of  money order forms until you are ready to use them.  Each time you  open  a  sealed  package  of  blank  money  order forms,  you  must  verify  each  form  by  serial  number before you issue them. SAFEGUARDING MONEY ORDER FORMS Blank money order forms are valuable and must be kept locked up when not in use.   When money order business is being conducted, blank money order forms should  be  kept  out  of  reach  of  postal  customers. Reserve stocks of money order forms in the custody of the designated custodian or a postal clerk must be kept in one of the following places to which the accountable person has sole access: ·   A vault ·   A three-position combination safe ·   Another container offering comparable security of a vault or three-position combination safe If  you  are  a  money  order  clerk,  you  must  have  a metal cashbox, drawer, or safe equipped with a suitable locking  device.    Blank  money  order  forms  must  be stowed  in  one  of  these  containers  when  you  are  not transacting  money  order  business. To  establish individual  responsibility,  combinations  or  keys  must not  be  available  to  other  persons.    If  your  stowage container  is  a  locked  box  or  drawer,  it  should  be secured in a safe during temporary absences or during nonbusiness  hours. Develop  good  security  habits when you start working in a post office.  They will be important to you as you advance in rate and take charge of  a  large  post  office. Unless  you  have  written permission  to  do  otherwise,  return  all  unused  blank money order forms to the custodian for safekeeping at the close of business each day. CARE IN HANDLING MONEY ORDER FORMS Money  order  forms  are  processed  by  machine. Therefore,  they  should  not  be  folded,  creased, smudged, or otherwise mutilated.  They should not be stored  in  damp  or  other  unsuitable  areas.   The  serial number on each money order set is machine-readable and must not be smudged. You should never handle the upper-third portion of the money order set.  When you open a new package of money order forms, you should keep the remaining forms under pressure.  A great deal of pressure is not needed, just enough to keep the forms flat is all that is required. Q8-30.   What  all  is  involved  in  the  sale  of  money orders? Q8-31.    List the parts of the domestic money order set. Q8-32.   Each money order set is assigned an 11-digit number. Which numbers are used by the MPO to identify the money order? Q8-33.   What  PS  form  is  used  to  order  blank  money order forms? Q8-34.   Blank money order forms should be ordered at least how many days before they are actually needed? Q8-35.   What  procedures  should  be  taken  if  your military post office runs short of blank money order forms? Q8-36.   Blank  money  order  forms  are  packaged  in units of what amount? Q8-37.   What  DD  form  is  used  to  account  for  the custody, control, status, and transfer of blank money order forms? Now turn to appendix 1 to check your answers. MONEY ORDER EQUIPMENT Learning Objective:  Identify the parts of, and the security requirements for, the money order imprinter. In addition to the money order form set, you will use  a  money  order  imprinter  while  issuing  money orders. The money order imprinter serves an important function in the money order process.  The settings and its use are explained below. MONEY ORDER IMPRINTER The money order imprinter is simple to operate.  It is quick, efficient, and designed to save time and effort at the finance window.  The money order imprinter you will be using is provided to Military Post Offices by the U.S.  Postal  Service  and  is  considered  accountable equipment under custody of the COPE. 8-31
