Once an entry is paid, the Secretary of the event is immediately notified of the entry through an email. Though the event is notified of the payment, the USEA sends lump sums to organizers on a weekly basis for all entries made within the prior week with a detailed accounting report. The USEA has stated to all organizers and secretaries that any payment received by USEA will be guaranteed to the organizer.  Some secretaries have elected to accept payments through the USEA after closing date because of this policy.
