The regional office (RO) is responsible for conducting a sample review every two to three years (depending on RO workloads) of the State's accounting records of monthly interim assistance reimbursement (IAR) payments.
ROs may modify the review procedures outlined in this chapter to conform to State variations and establish procedures to ensure accurate and timely IAR accounting.
B. Procedure for RO IAR Sample Reviews
Use the IAR Sample Review Worksheet in SI 02002.060 Exhibit IV, or a regionally developed substitute form to verify the accuracy of the State’s completion of:
the IAR authorization forms;
the eIAR computer screens;
Form SSAL-8125-F6's (Supplemental Security Income Notice of Interim Assistance).
Also, use the IAR Sample Review Worksheet to ensure that the State is claiming reimbursement for the correct dollar amount and the appropriate months and verify that the State is meeting IAR apportionment notice requirements.
NOTE: The Office of Income Security Programs (OISP) must approve any regionally developed Sample Review Worksheets. Refer to SI 02002.040 for further details.
