The following must be submitted to the Department for each employee and every person connected with a licensed check casher:

  1. A completed Employee Introduction Letter
  2. Two passport-style photographs of every person measuring not more that 2” x 2”. Please print the person’s name and social security number on the reverse side of each print.
  3. One original L-1 Enrollment Services receipt as proof of fingerprinting.
