A beneficiary may not appeal incorrect payments. An incorrect payment occurs when
we put a beneficiary in deferred payment status to apply the $1 for $2 benefit offset
for estimated earnings over the annual BOND amount in DI 60099.005.
Similar to the retirement annual earnings test, the system automatically places the
beneficiary in deferred status for an incorrect payment to apply the $1 for $2 offset.
The system collects the incorrect payments from the payable months and places the
beneficiary in current pay only after collecting all of the incorrect payment.
If it appears, the incorrect payment has been collected and the beneficiary remains
in deferred status, send a high priority MDW to L5R. NOTE: Do not issue critical payment or immediate payment (IP) to the individual under these
If the work estimate changes, the beneficiary should contact the Abt call center and
submit a revised estimate of annual earnings (for more information on benefits other
than current year, see RS 02510.005E.2. and for more information on appeals, which are not initial determinations, see GN 03101.080).
NOTE: If someone is requesting a CPS, you should call or email Management in L5R. The phone
number is listed in DOORS.
