or needs a representative payee, use the SSA-408 (Route Slip) to advise the Field
Office (FO) to prepare and release a copy of the award notice to the representative.
When the claimant has an appointed representative, instruct the FO to add the following
to the original and all copies of the award notice: “A copy of this notice was sent
to (name of appointed representative) on (date notice was released).”
