Explanation threshold for postage is now $50.00.

The JCC agreed to increase the threshold for comments on postage to $50.00. If they have questions about the expense on a claim, they may ask us for further inforrmation. In that circumstance, we will contact you. But effective immediately, it is only necessary to explain postage if the claimed amount is over $50.00. The threshold for binding remains at $25.00.  We will update the instructions for postage on the claim form.
