Active vs. Inactive Vendor Address

What is the difference between an active and an inactive address for a vendor?

A vendor's active address, viewable on the *DEFINE GG3, GG4, PG3, and PG4 screens and the Vendor Information page, is used for payment processing. Inactive addresses are former addresses or direct deposit information that is no longer usable in payment processing for a vendor. Addresses may be inactivated due to 18 months of inactivity or when they are discovered to be no longer valid for a vendor.

To reactivate an inactive address, create a new GGV document in *DEFINE. If the vendor already has a Payee Information Form (PIF) on file, the information will carry over to the newly created address.
