After a beneficiary contacts SSA to request good cause for not satisfying the outstanding
warrant, the beneficiary has 90 days to provide the good cause evidence or information
If at the end of the 90-day period the beneficiary has not submitted any evidence to establish good cause for not satisfying his/her warrant, then the request to establish good cause will be closed-out and SSA will not make a new
initial determination because no evidence was submitted by the beneficiary. See NL 00755.330A.3. for additional information about the good cause close-out notice to the beneficiary.
SSA will send the beneficiary a close-out notice (see example of close-out to send
the beneficiary in NL 00755.330E.3.) to tell him/her that SSA is closing out his/her request to establish good cause
for not satisfying his/her outstanding warrant. SSA will send this notice after 90 days have elapsed from the date the beneficiary contacted SSA to request good cause.
Because SSA is neither making a new initial determination nor reopening or revising
an initial suspension determination that would allow payment again if good cause had
been established, the close-out notice does not provide the beneficiary information
on requesting reconsideration or a hearing per NL 00601.150B.1.
