A. Policy – routing of PUPS alerts and PUPS records
When Central Office (CO) receives incoming inmate information it compares the report data previously received from a reporting correctional or mental institution to eliminate duplicate reports. The report information is then matched against the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR and (SSR) to locate eligibility/entitlement to social security benefits.
Once entitlement/eligibility is found, an alert is sent to the Program Center (PC), OCO-ODO or the field office (FO) for processing as follows:
The PC/OCO-ODO will receive title II PUPS alerts and records only when the following information is always on the PUPS alert:
