RM 03870.075 Action When YCER Development Complete

A. Procedure

Take the following action when YCER development is complete.

1. OCRO Request

If development was the result of an OCRO request, correct the Numident if necessary, reinstate the earnings from Suspense using IC (MSOM EM 013.001 , MSOM EM 014.001 ) and return the OCRO memo indicating the action taken.

If IC has not been expanded to your office, correct the Numident if necessary, return the OCRO memo indicating the action taken, attach the NH's statement and any evidence. OCRO will reinstate the earnings to the NH as necessary.

2. NH Request - One Year Involved

If development was the result of the NH (or legal guardian) contacting the FO, only one year is involved, and:

  1. The earnings belong to the NH and the DOB on the Numident is correct:

    • Reinstate the earnings from Suspense in IC. (MSOM EM 013.001 , MSOM EM 014.001), or

  2. The earnings belong to the NH, but the DOB on the Numident is wrong:

    • Correct the Numident (RM 10210.295) and:

    • When the DOB correction has been made on the Numident, reinstate the earnings using IC from Suspense (MSOM EM 013.001 - MSOM EM 014.001).

  3. If the earnings do not belong to the NH, the SSN and DOB are correct and the true NH cannot be located, take no action since the earnings are already in Suspense.

  4. The earnings do not belong to the NH, the SSN and DOB are correct, the true NH has been identified:

    • In IC reinstate the earnings from Suspense to the true NH (MSOM EM 013.001 , MSOM EM 014.001 ).

3. More Than 1 Year Involved

If, as the result of development of the YCER investigation, the NH (or legal guardian) states that earnings for other years also do not belong to him/her and:

  1. The true NH is not known or cannot be located.

    • Transfer the earnings for the additional years to Suspense in IC (MSOM EM 013.001 , MSOM EM 014.001 ).

    • Take no action for the YCER year, since the earnings are already in Suspense.

  2. The NH to whom the earnings belong is identified.

    • Use IC to transfer the earnings for the additional years to the correct NH. Follow 2.d. above for the YCER year.

4. PC Cases

When PC development is complete, follow 2 or 3 above to credit the earnings, transfer the earnings to the true NH or to Suspense. If the DOB on the Numident is incorrect and it is apparent that the FO failed to correct the Numident, request the FO to correct the DOB on the Numident.
