Semi Annual Report – also known as the SAR 7 Report, is due every six (6) months. It is determined upon your application date. Your SAR 7 Report is considered complete when you have answered yes or no to all questions, all proof or verification’s (with report date) are attached and all required signatures are completed. Please sign and date your SAR 7 with the submit month date. Remember to not submit your SAR7 before the first (1st) of your submit month date.

An appointment letter with your recertification packet will be sent to you approximately 30 days prior to the due date.
