Use a separate SSA-1199 (Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form) for each IDD country. The suffix
that appears after the form number designates the country for which we use the form.
The following chart displays the forms used for all IDD countries in alphanumeric
order, by form suffix, in the second column. This chart will help you find the POMS
reference you need to complete a particular form when you only have the form number.
EXAMPLE: If you want to find the POMS instructions for completing the SSA-1199-OP3, skim
through the form suffixes in the second column until you reach those that begin with
the letter “O.” They all begin with “OP.” All suffixes beginning with OP1 appear first,
followed by suffixes that begin with OP2. After OP2, you see OP20 through OP26, and
then OP3. As shown in the chart, when you locate the OP3, you see that GN 02402.310E provides the instructions you need to complete Form SSA-1199-OP3.
