SI SF02220.005 Documenting the SSI Overpayment - $20,000 or Above (RTN 170 — 11/2004)

See SI 02220.005 and SI 02220.030-SI 02220.031.

A. BACKGROUND

Effective with decisions made May 2004 or later, the San Francisco regional office (RO) will review overpayment decisions only when national instructions require RO concurrence. For cases not involving fraud, the following types of overpayment decisions require RO concurrence:

  • Waiver (approve or deny), unable/unwilling to repay (B-TAC), unable to locate/out of the country (M-TAC), uncollectible (N-TAC), or compromise settlement offer, of an overpayment of $20,000.00 or more.

  • Compromise settlement offer of an overpayment greater than $5,000.00 but less than $20,000.00, where the offer is less than 80% of the overpayment.

Since these overpayment inputs now involve a 2-PIN process and the input to approve the decision must be made the same day as the decision input (MSOM BUSSR 004.020), do not make any inputs until contacted by RO staff. If RO staff concurs with the proposed decision, the RO will contact the field office to coordinate the inputs.

B. PROCEDURE
