If you need additional information to complete the MCS screens (e.g., the Windfall
Elimination Exclusion (WEPX), or to verify lawful presence information per GN 00303.440), contact the claimant or appointed representative per GN 03910.050.
If the claimant is eligible for spouse benefits (AUXSPO), determine and obtain the
type of proofs necessary to fulfill the marriage certification requirement per RS 00202.065.
For instructions on passive question mark (?) entries propagated to MCS from the iClaim
application, see GN 00204.055P.
Generally, no action is necessary when a passive “?” is propagated to MCS. However,
see the exception in GN 00204.055P for “Public (Y/N)” and “Religious (Y/N)” on the
MCS Identification Screen (IDEN) when “A” (alleged) is propagated from iClaim for
“Record of Birth Before Age 5.”
Also, see the exception for “Select U.S. Proof of Citizenship Country is U.S.” on
the U.S. Citizenship Screen (CLCZ) when “4” (Development Pending) is propagated.
