Why is the sponsor number on my child packet different than the one on letters I receive? Which one do I use on letters I write?

I don't usually write letters on my own stationary, so I want to make sure I get the child number and sponsor number right so it goes to the right place. But I'm confused about what my sponsor number is. If the number on the letters from my child is correct, then it has changed from what it used to be. How do I know which number to use? Why would the number change?

I know one of my children just changed IDs because she moved areas and started attending a different center. She warned me she was going to for two letters before the ID actually changed.  (the child ID shows what center they are at)

Ok, so same principle for the sponsor number, right? They changed it when I moved? I guess I should use the one on my most recent letter, then. Thanks!

Hi Trisha! I'm sorry for any confusion with your sponsor number and child's number. When we went through a system overhaul a while ago, sponsor numbers were indeed changed and extra numbers were added to child numbers. Your sponsor number is 01282021 and your child's number is DR053200428. I hope this helps!
