HK Human Services applies to be payee for three beneficiaries on July 1, 2002. HK
is a newly created organizational payee, which at the same time applies for FFS status.
The FFS application is denied on July 15, 2002, because HK does not yet serve a minimum
of five beneficiaries.
On September 18, 2002, HK applies again for FFS status. The organization now provides
a list of five beneficiaries. The FO queries the SSN’s and verifies that HK has been
payee for these beneficiaries for a minimum of one month and on September 25, 2002,
approves HK's application to charge a fee and mails the corresponding notice.
Since HK now meets all the eligibility criteria as a FFS organization, it can collect
a fee beginning October 1, 2002.
