GN 02250.340 Waiver Determination for Automatic or Blanket Waiver

A. Policy

When waiver is approved in automatic or blanket waiver cases, the folder must be documented with the cause and disposition of the overpayment.

B. Procedure

If ROAR output is produced, annotate the information directly to the ROAR output and file it on the left side of the folder. If there is no ROAR output, prepare a skeleton SSA-635 with the following entries:

  • Item 6 - Explain how the overpayment was made.

  • Item 11(a) - Show “Based on the circumstances described in item 6, it is apparent that the beneficiary is without fault since payments were incorrect due to an administrative change of position rather than by any action of the individual.”

  • Item 11(b) - Show “Recovery for (inclusive months) is deemed against equity and good conscience (GN 02250.325).”

Do not send notice of the waiver to the person unless he/she was notified of the overpayment.
