GN 02408.710 Date of Death Incorrect on Record with EFT Payments
1. SSA receives a report with an incorrect date of death
When SSA receives a report that there is an incorrect date of death on the record, the processing center (PC) (for Title II) or the field office (FO) (for Title XVI):
Determines the correct date of death;
Corrects the date of death on the record;
Determines whether any incorrect reclamations have been sent to the Department of the Treasury (DT); and
Determines whether the reclamation request(s) previously sent contained all payments made after death.
2. Correct date of death is determined
Once the correct date of death has been determined, the FO/PC:
Sends an SSA-1714, Abandon Reclamation Request– EFT, to DT for any payments made before the actual death that have been included in a reclamation request; and
Inputs manual E-stops for any payments incorrectly made after death that have not already been included on a reclamation request.
