A PSY field code of C01, E01, E02, M01, or M02 indicates the recipient is eligible
for SSI. The DDS should not stop the CDR based on payment status.
A PSY code beginning with “T” indicates the recipient’s SSI benefits have been terminated
(e.g., T01 means the individual is deceased, while T31 indicates that eligibility
has been terminated) and the individual is no longer eligible for benefits. The DDS
should consider stopping the CDR.
For all other PSY codes (e.g., those beginning with an “H”, “N”, “P”, or “S) the DDS must contact the servicing FO to find out whether a CDR determination is
required. No FO contact is needed if the claim folder already contains documentation
(usually on a Form SSA-5002 (Report of Contact)) indicating the FO is aware of the payment status and requires
a CDR determination be made.
For a complete list and description of the payment status codes, see SM 01305.001G.
