This section describes how to code bank data for direct deposit of Title II benefits
to a financial institution (FI) in Antigua and Barbuda. The bank data will be stored
on the MBR in the same fields as are used for U.S. direct deposit. Special coding
identifies the data as International Direct Deposit (IDD) for Antigua and Barbuda
and allows benefit payments to be routed through the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas
City (FRBKC) and Citibank to the beneficiary's FI in Antigua and Barbuda.
NOTE: U.S. domestic (i.e., non-border) field offices (FOs) should not attempt to process
an IDD request for this country. U.S. domestic FOs must forward all appropriate information
to the Office of Earnings and International Operations, Division of International
Operations (OEIO, DIO) for processing (For more information on forwarding IDD information,,
see GN 02402.205C, GN 01010.255, and GN 01702.310C).
