When an incorrect electronic funds transfer (EFT) Title II or Title XVI payment after
death is refunded by an individual in cash, check, or money order, the refund goes
to Mid-Atlantic Program Service Center (MATPSC) for input to the SSA record and deposit
with our financial institution (FI).
MATPSC looks for the account number on the money order or check before discarding
the envelope. When complete information is not present on the check or money order,
MATPSC saves the envelope when it contains the name and address of the sender, and
tracks down the necessary information when possible.
For situations when dual recovery occurs, see GN 02408.720.
