SI NY02220.025 SSI Overpayment - Recovery By Refund

See SI 02220.025

There are times when a field office (FO) determines that a past representative payee is solely liable for an SSI overpayment on a recipient's record. The question arises as to how to load the overpayment to the Recovery and Collection of Overpayment Process (RECOOP) when the recipient's record is in current pay with the new representative payee. This situation can be handled in the following manner:

The office should place a "G TAC" code on the record with the overpayment (with the liable representative payee), and then terminate the record. The "G TAC" will load that record to RECOOP. A new record can then be established with the new representative payee.

In order to ensure that RECOOP does not try to automatically bring the overpayment forward to the current record, the FO must access the "REMARKS SCREEN" of the DEBT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (MSOM DMS 009.001), and indicate that the overpayment should remain on the earlier record and not brought forward to the current record.
