If you are unable to locate the beneficiary, update the suspense reason to reflect
the reason for non-payment.
For title XVI cases, change the suspense reason from S08 to S06 (refer to SI 02301.201B2
and SI 02301.240).
For title II cases involving a disability wage earner (HA) who is NOT due or overdue
a continuing disability review (CDR) (refer to POMS DI 13015.005) and the case contains one or more auxiliaries in current pay status, change the HA’s
LAF code to S-9 with a RFST of “MISCEL”, retroactive to the first month of suspension.
This will require a two-step input process in the same transaction. Use the DPYE to
reinstate (end) the S-8 period retroactive to the first month of suspension and then
use the MISC screen (MSOM COMMON 005.025) to suspend S-9 retroactive to the original
date of suspension. Add a special message to the MBR “whereabouts unk/payee may be
needed”. Establish a MDW to recall the case when the CDR date matures so the payment
can be updated (to S-0 status) at that time.
For all other title II cases involving a disabled beneficiary (due or over due for
a CDR or no auxiliaries involved or a missing DAC), change the LAF code to S-0. Refer
to DI 13010.160 and SM 03020.050. This will require a two-step process as part of the same transaction.
Use the DPYE screen (MSOM COMMON 005.020) to reinstate (end) the S-8 period retroactive
to the original date of suspension (DOST). Use the CDIB screen (MSOM COMMON 005.008
to suspend benefits S-0 retroactive to the original suspense (S-8) date.
For all title II cases involving a non-disability beneficiary, change the LAF code
from S-8 to S-9 RFST “WHEREU”. This will require a two- step input process in the
same transaction. Use the DPYE screen to reinstate (end) the S-8 period effective
with the current operating month (COM). Use the WHRU screen to input the S-9 RFST
action effective COM (MSOM COMMON 005.034)
