Frequently Asked Questions


Do Not Pay (DNP) is a service that agencies can use at no cost to check many data sources at one time to verify a recipient's eligibility for payment.

DNP is NOT a list of entities or people who should not be paid.

Because it provides one-stop access to many ways to check eligibility, DNP benefits any federal agency that enters into a financial transaction with a person or entity.

DNP also benefits us all by helping to ensure the integrity of our nation's payment processes.

DNP is committed to providing:

  • Quality data
  • More and better quality data
  • Continuous system development
  • Cutting edge data analytics
  • Customized agency outreach
