Annual COLA increases to the FBR are effective on January 1 of each year. PPL cases
that are not scheduled for redetermination are selected as limited issues in November,
December, and January of each fiscal year and are controlled on the Post Entitlement
Operational Data Store (PE ODS) system. These limited issues can be identified in
the CRZD segment of a Supplemental Security Income Display (SSID) query as a profile
X with a selection indicator of G. PE ODS offline counts/case data queries can be
obtained for PPL limited issues by entering selection indicator G in the optional
fields segment of the PE ODS mask. PPL cases that have pending redeterminations will
not be selected as limited issues.
For all cases in protected payment status whether selected as limited issues or scheduled
for redeterminations (including cases in N07 or N08 due to a disability or blindness cessation), FOs will check on the status of the appeal,
determine if benefit continuation is still appropriate, and correct the PPL, as necessary
(see SI 02301.325C.).
