If SSA does not have the authority to compromise (GN 02215.100B.2), refer to DOJ with appropriate development.
When a debt claim for whatever reason has been reported to DOJ, forward any compromise
offer regardless of the debt amount.
If fraud involved (regardless of debt amount) forward the offer through appropriate
channels to the Office of Inspector General (OIG). OIG will refer to the U.S. Attorney,
If fraud is not involved, but the overpayment exceeds $100,000 and SSA wishes to accept
the offer, the PC will use the Claims Collection Litigation Report (CCLR) (GN 02215.168) and Certificate of Indebtedness (COI) (see GN 02215.200C) to forward the offer to Central Justice for a decision. Send the CCLR to:
