Hold Inquiry Screens
Payee Held Warrants Released (PYWTHR)

The Payee Held Warrants Released (PYWTHR) screen displays a summary of a payee’s held warrants that have been released or offset. The released held warrants are displayed by payment issue date with the most recent date first. Each issuing agency can view only the released held warrants issued by that agency.

PYWTHR automatically calculates the check digit for a TIN.
