GN 03940.060 Fee Agreement Manual Notices
SSA has automated most of the fee agreement notice process; however, some notices remain manual actions. The fee agreement paragraphs and notices that are not systems generated include:
Title II “neutral language” paragraphs SSA uses when deferring authorization of a fee (see GN 03940.075).
Title II paragraphs SSA uses when a delayed auxiliary claim(s) is involved (see GN 03940.080).
Title XVI notices when SSA is authorizing fees to multiple representatives.
Title XVI notices when a representative who is eligible for direct payment waives a fee.
Title XVI notices when the authorized fee is manually calculated. It is necessary to manually calculate the fee to authorize in posteligibility cases and when including an eligible spouse’s past-due benefits in the husband or wife’s past-due benefits for representative fee purposes.
