The Embassy either:
Mails the correspondence to the addressee, or
Gives it to him when he comes in to pick up his benefit check if he is in current
pay status. (Beneficiaries in Nicaragua pick up their checks at the Embassy).
If a letter which contains an appeal paragraph (e.g., an award notice) is held for
more than 5 workdays, the Embassy advises SSA of the date of the release so that SSA
can annotate its records in the event the determination is appealed.
