The effectuating component after receiving an order from the OGC is responsible for
assuring that payments to individuals based on court orders are accurate and timely.
All actions should be expedited, and, where necessary, the claims folder should be
“walked” through the processing steps. If the computer system rejects the initial
systems input to pay benefits in a court case, a special payment should be made outside
of the system (i.e., one check only or automated one-time payment).
NOTE: In title II claims, payment to any beneficiary on the earnings record should not be delayed while development is undertaken for other beneficiaries on the record.
