If, despite all reasonable efforts, you are unsuccessful in collecting an overpayment
of $3,000 or more ($5,000 or more in estate cases), refer the overpayment to the DOJ,
through the ARC MOS.
However, do not refer a death case of more than $5,000 when there is no estate (GN 02215.150).
NOTE: Unsuccessful efforts to collect funds misused or misapplied by a representative payee,
or transfer funds conserved by a former payee may also be referred to the DOJ.
To enforce collection through civil suit, the Government must be able to prove its
case based on the information provided in the Claims Collection Litigation Report
(CCLR) (see GN 02215.168).
