This section describes how to code bank data for international direct deposit (IDD)
of title II benefits to a financial institution (FI) in Argentina.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) stores bank data on the Master Beneficiary
Record (MBR) in the same fields used for United States (U.S.) direct deposit.
Special coding identifies the data as an Argentinian direct deposit and allows SSA
to route benefit payments through the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (FRBKC)
and the processor bank in Argentina to the beneficiary's FI.
If you receive an IDD request in a U.S. domestic (i.e., non-border) field office (FO),
forward all appropriate information to the Office of Earnings and International Operations,
(OEIO, DIO) for processing.
For more detail on IDD requests and forwarding information, see
