On occasion either the OGC or the OALC will request that implementation of the court
order be halted. This may occur because SSA wants to appeal the court order.
When OGC, OALC and the Department of Justice (DOJ)) agree that a court order requiring
payment of benefits should be appealed, OGC or OALC will contact the effectuating
component (OCO/PSC in title II cases and RO/FO in title XVI cases) by telephone requesting
that benefit effectuation be halted. OGC or OALC will provide written confirmation
of the halt request by preparing and releasing GN 03106.099, Exhibit D. If no appeal is filed, or if the Commissioner is not successful on appeal,
OGC or OALC will again contact the effectuating component by telephone and confirm
in writing by preparing and releasing a memorandum (see GN 03106.099, Exhibit E) requesting that effectuation of the court order be resumed.
