This section describes how to code bank data for direct deposit of Title II benefits
to a financial institution (FI) in Israel. 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 Israel and allows benefit payments
to be routed through the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (FRBKC) and the processor
bank in Israeli to the beneficiary’s FI in Israel.
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
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, GN 01702.310C).
