When the system computes an UP of $5,000 - $49,999.99, it holds the UP and sets a
U2 diary until the technician releases the UP.
After the prepayment review, the reviewer accesses the Direct SSR Update to provide
authorization for release of the UP through the UOUP screen. To view the UOUP screen,
see MS 00304.018. The reviewer releases the UP to the recipient or representative
payee unless one of the following criteria is met:
Interim Assistance Reimbursement (IAR) applies, per SM 01311.662;
Direct fee payment to an authorized representative, per SM 01311.664;
Installment only payments (the system will automatically release the payments), per
SM 01311.668; or
Dedicated account case (the system will set all appropriate diaries, issue an alert
and release an automated notice to the representative payee), see SI 01130.601 and SM 01300.667.
NOTE: For UPs of $50,000 or more, see SI 02101.055.
