Initially, FOs will review/process/resolve the monthly generated earnings verification
request (VY) issues prior to the PM/OESP receiving an EN payment request for processing.
There are times, during the case review, where earnings related actions cannot be
completed timely and additional activity must be taken to resolve the issue and make
monthly verifications. During this time, the EN may have submitted a payment request
and the PM/OESP must act in processing the request. The OPAYMENT issue is generated
to advise the FO that an EN payment request has been submitted for the associated
month and priority processing activity is needed to comply with the Agency’s mission
regarding timely payments.
It is important to know that the comment area of the OPAYMENT issue will be used to specifically explain what FO actions are
needed to resolve the related issue.
Additional information pertaining to the FO responsibilities for handling reports
of earnings from the PM can be found in DI 55030.015.
