I previously submitted an application for compensation to the Commission/SRB, and a Dec. 27, 2017 Commission letter states I don’t have to submit an application to the Commission again. However, I’ve never submitted an Assignment – will one be required?

Yes. The Commission will contact you on or near your next surface lease anniversary with respect to completion of an Assignment, unless you notify us that you are applying to the SRB. If you are not applying to the SRB, an Assignment will be required only once. If you choose to apply to the SRB, an Assignment will be required on an annual basis.
