The ICF Resource Page has instructions for using ICF in subsequent auxiliary claims
with WC/PDB. See MSOM ICFT2 031.001 through MS ICFT2 036.010 and the ICF Tool - Interactive Computations Facility (ICF) Resource Page for WC/PDB Offset Computations.
A subsequent auxiliary claim is an MCS/EC processing limitation if the auxiliary entitlement
requires an adjustment to the NH’s WC/PDB offset. In these situations, compute the
offset in ICF and process the case via A101/EF101.
If you cannot process the case via MCS/EC:
Compute WC/PDB offset via ICF for your claimant, the NH, and any other already entitled
auxiliaries; apply offset to the auxiliaries first, then to the NH.
Consider changes to the TFB with the addition of subsequent auxiliaries per instructions
in DI 52150.070 How Changes in Family Composition Affect WC/PDB Offset.
Process the case via A101/EF101.
Prepare notices for your claimant, the NH, and any entitled auxiliary per instructions
in DI 52140.001I. in this section.
Processing DIB Claims with WC/PDB and Auxiliaries in DI 52155.015.
NOTE: Offset may apply to auxiliaries even though the NH’s benefit is not offset. If deemed
filing does not apply and if the spouse does not receive any benefit after WC offset
except for protected increases, it may not be advantageous for the spouse to file
if he or she receives a reduction for age. Subsequent auxiliary entitlement may result
in higher benefits payable after offset (or full DIB benefits payable) to the NH.
