Hold Inquiry Screens
Payee Warrants on Hold (PYWTHD)

The Payee Warrants On Hold (PYWTHD) screen displays a list of warrants being held for a specific TIN. The held warrants are displayed in the order of payment issue date with the most recent date first. Each issuing agency can view only the held warrants issued by that agency.

PYWTHD automatically calculates the check digit for a TIN.
