Does anyone know yet how payments will be working for missionary accounts now that all foreign missionaries have been returned back to the states? Curious if SLC will be aware of this and be able to track the changes and decision missionaries make to hold out for a bit, etc.
I'm confident SLC is aware of the missionaries and where they are (and if they have been released or not). I suspect no one on this user-to-user mutual help forum know what the Missionary Department is planning to do regarding the payments. It is highly likely no one here will find out before anyone else.

However, I wouldn't be surprised but what some things will happen automatically and have to be manually backed out.
On top of everything else, we have the usual issue of timing in determining if the final month is charged or not.
What about missionaries that had prepaid the entire 24 months and came home 3 months early? Anyone know what happens to the $1200 left in the accounts?

The money stays in the ward missionary fund. You may wish to read this topic.
In addition to that topic, you may want to review the information at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/help/support/missionary-finances. The second paragraph under "General guidelines" gives stake presidents and bishops the responsibility to make sure that families understand the concerns with prepaying for missions. In my opinion, this responsibility also extends to clerks who have more frequent opportunities to observe missionary finances and are also responsible to assist bishops with the responsibilities for finances.
