This section describes how to code bank data for direct deposit of Title II benefits
to a financial institution (FI) in Hong Kong. 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 Hong Kong International Direct Deposit (IDD) and allows benefit payments
to be routed through the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (FRBKC) and the processor
bank in Hong Kong to the beneficiary's FI in Hong Kong.
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).
