SI 02301.245 Check Returned for Miscellaneous Reasons (S07)
Checks returned for reasons that are unclear or for reasons other than address or a representative payee problem may result in benefit suspension (S07).
This is what happens when the system receives a returned check report for miscellaneous reasons and suspends benefits.
| || |
The system processes returned check data to the record based on:
FO input of a returned check in the CH field on the SSR,or
receipt of a returned check report from the U.S. Treasury Department.
NOTE: The FO may be able to avoid a suspension by inputting data with a returned check such as income, resource, or living arrangement and address information. For these actions and returned check codes, see SM 01315.042.
The system suspends benefits effective the first month that it can actually stop them based on the monthly recurring payment tape cutoff and generates S07 on the record.
NOTE: An S07 suspension is an exception to systems GK processing described in SI 02301.301 below.
The system issues a notice (SSA-L8155) with appeal rights and the right to payment continuation.
The system may issue a returned check diary or alert for the FO to resolve depending on the reason for return (see SM 01315.070ff.).
C. PROCEDURE — REINSTATING BENEFITS
Reinstate benefits effective the month of suspension (or a later month) when the recipient meets all eligibility requirements. Follow reinstatement instructions in SI 02301.210 above.
