SI 02305.073 Abridged Unredetermined Initial Claims (UC) Profile RZs

A. Policy

Although UC RZs may be completed in MSSICS, there is no abridged path at this time. Abridged UC profile RZs can only be completed on a paper RZ form. Under abridged procedures, FOs ask 11 questions on the SSA–8203–BK (Statement for Determining Continuing Eligibility for Supplemental Security Income Payments) which focus on the following areas when completing UC RZs:

  • Living arrangements;

  • Support and maintenance from inside and/or outside the household; and

  • Liquid resources.

NOTE: Third party liability, food stamp, leads for potential title II benefits and fugitive felon questions are required during each FO completed RZ.

Other questions may be completed if circumstances indicate their completion would be appropriate (e.g., unverified earnings are on the record).

Questions on the current, approved SSA–8203–BK must be completed when conducting abridged UC RZs. No facsimiles are acceptable (e.g., do not use a “cut and paste” shortened version).

IMPORTANT: These instructions do not apply to any other RZ profile.

B. Procedure

The required questions are circled on the form SSA–8203–BK. Complete the following questions on the SSA–8203–BK when completing abridged UC RZs and develop per appropriate POMS instructions:
