ERISA requests are forwarded to the Division of Earnings and Business Services (DEBS) from the Division of Training and Program Support (DTPS). DEBS examines each request to determine their acceptability for SSA's compliance with the request. DEBS will base their determination on the completeness of identifying information furnished by the requester, i.e., plan participant's name, SSN, signature, proper third party authorization, etc.
In addition, the DEBS will examine each ERISA request in its entirety to determine the type of response that must be prepared.
