Initial overpayment notices request repayment of Title II and Title XVI overpayments
from debtors or liable persons. The notices explain the debtor’s options for repaying,
including repayment by credit card. Debtors who wish to repay by credit card can do
so in person by visiting their local field office; or by mail, using their credit
card information to complete the payment stub enclosed in the notice. The debtor should
mail the completed payment stub to the Mid-Atlantic Program Center (MATPSC) using
the refund envelope included with the initial overpayment notice.

Once the initial overpayment notice is sent, for a person that is in current pay status,
the system automates collection activity for most overpayments. If the recipient is
in non-pay status, the system transfers jurisdiction for collection of the overpayment
to the Recovery and Collection Overpayment Process (RECOOP).
