Send a complete and signed RFAL form to go on hold. Once on hold, you will remain on hold until you send us another completed RFAL form to be put back on the active list (AL). You will be assigned the same number in the queue/AL, as you held before you went on hold, except if you held any of the top 5 position on the AL, you will be assigned number 6 on the AL.
