GN 03930.050 List of CR and CA/CTE Responsibilities for Adjudicating Title II Postentitlement Actions Involving Representatives Who May Petition
Claims representatives (CRs), claims authorizers (CAs) and claims technical examiners (CTEs) adjudicate title II postentitlement actions involving representatives who may petition to obtain SSA's approval of fees for their services. The key CR and CA/CTE responsibilities are basically the same as for claims actions:
Ensure that SSA withholds from any past-due benefits for possible direct payment, when required;
Provide correct notice to the claimant and the claimant's representative; and
Set the diary for receipt of the fee petition or fee authorization when SSA is withholding past-due benefits for possible direct payment to a representative.
However, the CR or CA/CTE designates either MADCAP or manual paragraphs because postentitlement actions are not processed through MCS.
