When a reclamation request contains at least seven payments with an outstanding dollar
amount over $15,000.00, Treasury forwards a copy of the reclamation request to the
USSS for review and forwards the FMS-133 into the PC paperless system.
SSA receives the FMS-133 with language stating:
“Forward to USSS (date) - Agency should not attempt collection until response received from USSS”
The USSS attempts to contact the last withdrawers and make a refund agreement.
When the USSS and SSA both secure refund agreements, accept and process the better
one . No action is taken on the FMS-133 when the terms of the agreement are honored.
When the terms of the agreement are not honored or no agreement is made, the FMS-133
is stamped “RECLAIM” and returned to the appropriate RFC for final debit.
