Decision Factor: Did the proper payee sign the accounting report? (If the payee is an institution or
agency, the form should show the signature of an authorized person who may be contacted
for clarification on any of the responses; e.g., administrator, superintendent, caseworker.)
If yes, Approve the response.
If no, Return the report to the payee with a notice stating that we are unable to process
the report because it was not (presumably) completed and signed by the representative
payee. Prepare and send the payee an SSA-623-F6 or SSA-6230-F6 to complete.
NOTE: The Office of Program Benefits will develop standard notice language and include
in NL 00703. In the interim, develop local language informing the payee that “We are
unable to process the Representative Payee Report recently submitted because it was
not completed and signed by the individual or organization appointed to serve as representative
Diary for 30 days.
SUBSEQUENT ACTION: If the signed report is not received, consider the case a nonresponder and forward
to the FO development. FOs should follow nonresponder procedures in GN 00605.085.
