Paper Check Conversion – Over the Counter (PCC-OTC)

The U.S. Department of Labor, Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) has moved toward electronic processing of checks through the Paper Check Conversion Over the Counter system (PCC – OTC). PCC OTC is a web application that converts personal and business checks into electronic fund transfers or substitute checks. When you mail a completed, signed check to the DEEOIC, the information from your check is scanned into the PCC OTC system and used to generate a potential electronic transfer or substitute check from your account.

When you provide a check as payment, you authorize DEEOIC either to use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process your check as a check transaction. You will not receive your original check back from your financial institution. The original check will be destroyed.

The electronic transfer of funds from your account could occur as soon as the same day we receive your check or within 24 hours of receipt of your check and will be shown on your regular statement. Therefore, you should be sure that you have sufficient funds in your account to process the transaction. If you do not have sufficient funds we may try to make the transfer up to two more times.
