Checks are mailed to beneficiaries in the Adana district.
When the representative of the FSP in Adana makes his annual visit to the Elazig-Hozat
area (with prior authorization from the Regional Federal Benefits Officer (RFBO))
he delivers the checks which are in the FSP or Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) at the
time of the visit personally to the beneficiaries. While delivering the checks, he
also verifies that third parties have not interfered with the receipt and cashing
of the benefit checks.
Checks are given to a third party for the beneficiary if he presents a signed statement
from the local gendarme showing the beneficiary is alive. If a beneficiary does not
appear for two consecutive contacts, (with prior authorization from the RFBO) an FSP
employee personally verifies his existence and identity.
