SI 00530.280 OIG Case Feedback Form

NOTE: On April 1, 2009, SSA changed its policy of not paying fleeing felons. Follow the instructions below only for felony warrants with offense codes 4901, 4902, or 4999. Follow the Martinez settlement instructions in GN 02613.860 GN 02613.885 for all other felony warrant codes.

On May 9, 2011, SSA changed its policy and no longer suspends or denies benefits or payments based solely on a probation or parole violation warrant (i.e., warrants with offense codes 5011, 5012, 8101, 8102, or 9999 or “Blank” and an offense charge symbol of “probation or parole violation”). Follow the Clark Court Order instructions in GN 02615.100 GN 02615.190 for all probation or parole violation warrants.

We will make additional changes to this section, as necessary, in the future.

A. Introduction

OIG will include a feedback form with each fugitive felon referral it sends to the FO. The feedback form asks for information about fugitive felon cases used for management information purposes until such time as an automated system is available to collect this information. The feedback form may be found either on the back of the Investigative Summary or as a separate document.

B. Procedure — suspension action appropriate

  1. If suspension action is taken based on the OIG referral, complete the feedback form by providing the following information:

    • Social Security Number;

    • Name of individual suspended;

    • Date suspension action taken;

    • Payment at time of suspension;

    • Total overpayment resulting from suspension;

    • Compute the overpayment even if N25 is posted on a closed period case;

    • Name, title, FO code, and telephone of person completing form.

  2. Make two copies of the Investigative Summary and the feedback form. Retain the original and send one copy to the OIG (at the address provided on the form) and one copy to your Regional Office, ATTN: REGIONAL FUGITIVE COORDINATOR.

  3. Return feedback form to OIG within 10 days after suspension action is updated to the SSR.

C. Procedure — suspension action not appropriate

If you review the evidence submitted by the OIG and determine that no action is appropriate based on the referral (e.g. because benefits were already terminated for the period covered by the warrant or there was no SSI eligibility):

  1. Complete the feedback form with an explanation of your determination,

  2. Make two copies of the Investigative Summary and the feedback from. Retain the original and send one copy to the OIG (at the address provided on the form) and one copy to your Regional Office, ATTN: REGIONAL FUGITIVE COORDINATOR.

  3. Return feedback form to OIG within 10 days of your determination.
