When a claim is allowed and the system is aware that an IAR authorization is in effect,
it sends notification of the recipient’s award to State and local agencies involved
with the repayment. Shortly after notice to the agency systems sends the first SSI
payment or retroactive check.
With the implementation of the eIAR System on 11/25/2010, once the FO completes the
Pre-Effectuation Review (PERC) and actions to adjudicate the claim, and the UPV of
V is established on the SSR, the electronic IA reimbursement process of most IA cases
is triggered. The state agency is requested to electronically submit payments made
through the eIAR System. Once the State Agencies submit their payments made through
the eIAR System, the SSI system will then automatically determine the reimbursable
amount, pay the state agency via direct deposit, and automatically process the underpayment
and installments, according to the priority of payment rules to release underpayments.
As present policy dictates, state agencies have 25 working days to report IA payments
made. If the state agencies do not report the IA payments, the SSI system automatically
processes the underpayment according to the priority of payment rules.
