Processing centers (PC) set controls for the receipt of a fee petition or fee authorization
on title II claims and concurrent titles II and XVI claims.
The Single Payment System provides a listing of pending representative payments.
Processing centers may create an Action Control Record (ACR) to control the work through
the Processing Center Action Control System (PCACS). The Type of Event Level (TOEL)
1 and 2 explains the diary waiting to be processed. Assign a TOEL of ATFEE PETPAY
for any diary established to control for the receipt of a fee petition from a representative
who is eligible for direct payment or a fee authorization from OHO or OAO. If the
only pending issue is court ordered fees, use a TOEL of ATFEE COURT. PSCs also have
their own listing codes. The ACR remains in the Development Holding File (DHF) until
the issue is resolved.
NOTE: In the Office of Central Operations, technicians processing Office of Hearings Operations
(OHO) or Office of Appellate Operations (OAO) or court level cases, prepare a PCACS
diary related to the existing “ATFEE PAY” or ATFEE COURT” ACR, and route the claims
to the DHF PAY pending receipt of the fee authorization.
The Modernized Claim System (MCS) diaries may control the actions.
The preferred method of establishing the controls may vary among the PCs. Follow PC
