The amount and disposition of an overpayment waiver approval determines the level
of review that is required. Use the chart in GN 02250.301.B.6. to determine the level of management review that is required when fraud is not
involved. For fraud development, see GN 02201.050.
If the reviewer determines that the waiver approval does not have proper documentation
and/or is not in compliance with regulations or SSA procedures, the case will be returned
to the decisionmaker for correction. Once correction is made, if the decision is still
to approve waiver of recovery, the decisionmaker will re-route the case to the appropriate
reviewer for sign-off. If waiver of recovery cannot be approved, follow the procedures
in GN 02270.000.
