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