GN 00905.452 Claims from Residents of Turkey

A. Policy

Where possible, claimants must personally file applications for monthly benefits before a Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) representative or a Foreign Service Post (FSP) representative if needed with prior Regional Federal Benefits Officer (RFBO) authorization.

In any event, an FBU or FSP (with prior authorization from the RFBO) employee must personally identify every claimant who lives in the Elazig- Hozat area before delivery of the first check.

Exception: Claims from persons not born in Turkey and which do not depend on Turkish proofs may be handled under the normal development procedures.

B. Process

When a claimant appears at an FBU or FSP (with prior RFBO authorization) asking for benefits, the FBU or FSP:

  • Secures a statement concerning his claim for benefits;

  • Verifies the claimant's identity;

  • Certifies the claimant's identification book (see D.); and

  • Forwards this material to DIO, with any evidence the individual submits.

C. Procedure

Handle claims inquiries as follows:

  • Send responses to claimants through the FBUs servicing their addresses; and

  • Provide the FBU with the necessary forms and complete instructions if it is requested to develop a claim for benefits. Do not send the forms to the claimant.

D. Exhibit

The following form is used by the FSP in Adana (with prior RFBO authorization) to certify the contents of a claimant's Turkish census record or identification book.
