GN 02402.376 Coding Peru Bank Data on the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR)
A. Background for coding Peru bank data
This section describes how to code bank data for international direct deposit (IDD) of Title II benefits to a financial institution (FI) in Peru. The Social Security Administration (SSA) stores IDD bank data on the MBR in the same fields used for United States (U.S.) direct deposit.
Special coding identifies the data as a Peruvian direct deposit and allows us to route benefit payments through the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (FRBKC) and the processor bank in Peru to the beneficiary's local 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
B. How we receive IDD bank data
We receive requests to input bank data by mail, phone, or fax in the following formats:
If upon receipt of the information, there are any discrepancies, follow instructions
GN 00203.020, Identity of Claimants
GN 02402.025, Direct Deposit Post Entitlement Interview
C. Multi-country contract
The processing FI for Peru has a prefix of 70 at the beginning of the Routing Transit Number (RTN).
D. Overview of IDD for Peru
The beneficiary must provide complete information to DIO or the Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) for input. DIO will fax incomplete forms to the FBU that serves Peru. The FBU contacts the beneficiary or FI for additional info.
E. Description of Peruvian IDD bank data
The data for coding IDD for Peru comes from banks determined by the FRBKC.
The bank data for Peru reflected on the MBR consists of up to 27 characters including the country code of Q for Peru.
F. Policy for coding Peru bank data
The FRBKC relies on SSA to provide the complete bank data to ensure correct posting of payments to a customer’s account. If the information is incomplete, the FRBKC rejects the payment and returns the funds to SSA.
When establishing or changing IDD bank data for Peru, you can use an SSA system (i.e. Modernized Claims System (MCS), Manual Adjustment Credit and Award Data Entry (MACADE)). However, you must go to ITS.gov to enter the following:
beneficiary ID (Beneficiary date of birth required in the “Beneficiary ID” field in the following format DDMMYYYY);
CCI (Codigo de Cuenta Interbancario) (20 digits)
first and last name of the beneficiary;
Society for Worldwide Internet Financial Telecommunication-Business Identifier Code (SWIFT-BIC).
1. The SWIFT code should consist of 11 alphanumeric characters
First four characters - bank code (only letters);
Next two characters - ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters);
Next two characters - location code (letters and digits) (passive participant have "1" in the second character); and
Last three characters - branch code, optional ('XXX' for primary office) (letters and digits).
2. Process initial award
If you are working on an initial award, you must update ITS.gov using the bank account information prior to processing the award to ensure the beneficiary receives his or her payment.
If the complete bank account information is not in ITS.gov when the payment processes, the payment rejects and returns to SSA.
3. Add or update bank data using SSA systems
When you add or update IDD bank data using an SSA system (e.g. Post Entitlement Online System (POS), MACADE), you must:
Use procedures outlined in the following chart when processing within four business days of the current operational month (COM) cutoff date.
Are you coding an initial claim?
If yes, go to step 3.
If no, go to step 2.
Is the beneficiary's address on the MBR in a foreign country (PCOC = 8)? If no, STOP.
REASON: The MBR does not accept the IDD information unless the address is in a foreign country.
If yes, go to step 3.
Is the beneficiary's account a PEN account in Peru? If no, STOP.
REASON: Beneficiaries in Peru can only receive IDD payments in PEN accounts.
If yes, go to step 4
The RTN is 700000025 for all IDD to Peru. It contains the:
No need to obtain the check digit code from Title II Interactive Comps.
Code the Type of Account as:
“S” for savings; or
“C” for checking.
If no indicated account type, use a “C” for checking account.
Code the Depositor Account Number (DAN) for Peru as follows:
You must take action on the same business day to enter all the information into ITS.gov listed in the introduction of GN 02402.376F in this section
You must access ITS.gov or ask a co-worker to update the required information into ITS.gov.
REMINDER: When information is not available, FRBKC rejects the payment and returns it to our agency.
