Most organizations pay their officials monthly. If 4 weeks have gone by and you still have not been paid for a game you officiated, reach out to your assignor. It is a good idea to keep a personal payment record of games that you skate. It is not your assignors job to look out for your money.
Talk to your assignor, and let him or her know that you are interested in progressing. Before you are placed in a higher level game, you will likely be supervised or evaluated at the level you are currently at.
