Enter the social security number (SSN) of the primary beneficiary. In CDB or DWB cases,
show wage earner's SSN. To the right of the SSN, enter the beneficiary identification
code (BIC) shown under the BIC caption on the latest award document in the claims
folder for the disabled beneficiary; e.g., “A” for disabled wage earner.
NOTE: If disabled wage earner's BIC is shown as “HA,” enter only “A” on SSA-833-U5. Also, enter any numerical suffix following a designated BIC; e.g.,
C1 (CDB), enter both “C” and “1.”
