      Gift Card Payments of $60.00 or Less - Individual gift card or cash payments to research study participants for amounts of $60 or less are considered by MCW to be de minimis in nature and do not require a social security number to be collected from participants. The research study participant’s proper legal name, signature, date and amount received are required to be collected and stored by the research study site and submitted to Accounts Payable. This de minimis amount is not applicable to check payments.

      Gift Card Payments greater than $60.00 – Individual gift card or cash payments to research study participants greater than $60 require the collection of the participant’s proper legal name, home address, social security number and amount received. This information must be stored securely (e.g. in locked drawer if paper format, or an encrypted file if in electronic format; the key for which is kept by a limited number of people who have a need to know) at the research study site, and also submitted via secure means (e.g. encrypted file) to Accounts Payable.

      The Forte Payment Card payments are subject to 1099 reporting. The research study participant’s proper legal name, home address, and social security number are required to be collected, entered and stored in the Forte Payment application.
