Type 2 cases are likely to be eligible under the new eligibility requirements.
This group consists of all cases described in SI 00502.155B.1. with AR codes that reflect either unknown citizenship/alien status, or alien status
plus an indicator of likely eligibility. This group includes:
unknown-status recipients with AR codes of B, D (with date of eligibility (DOE) of
1/74 - 12/81), E, U, V, and records with no code present;
LAPRs (codes K, S, and Y) who have received title II benefits; and
alien recipients in any AR code who have received veterans benefits or Department
of Defense annuities.
In February and March, 1997, CO will send these recipients an automated informational
notice to inform them of the new eligibility requirements and to advise them that
we will be contacting them for evidence of citizenship or eligible alien status.
An A5 diary will be set on each of these cases (SI 02305.013). They diary will be associated with Type 2 cases that are selected for a redetermination
in the December 1996 selection process. If a case is not eligible for redetermination
selection in December 1996, it will be selected as a profile H limited issue for development
of alien status. The diary also will be set on pending redeterminations, and pending
limited issues that meet the criteria for an A5 diary will be selected as profile
H limited issues. The A5 diary will be controlled on the Post Entitlement Operational
Data Store (PE ODS) system.
As FOs encounter Type 2 recipients for redeterminations, recipient reports, or other
inquiries or contacts, they should initiate development of alien eligibility under
the requirements of SI 00502.100. If no such contact otherwise occurs with a recipient, FOs should initiate limited
issue development no earlier than February 1997, when the notices are first mailed.
For those individuals determined to be eligible under the new rules, FOs will complete the alien eligibility determination by making
the appropriate systems input and issuing the appropriate favorable due process notice.
For those individuals who are not determined to be eligible under the new rules, CO will complete the determination by issuing an NPA with Goldberg v. Kelly due process rights and suspending eligibility in 1997.
By law, SSA must complete a new determination of alien eligibility for all potentially
affected cases no later than 8/22/97.
