NOTE: Effective 11/18/2006 permission to contact financial institutions must be requested at all
RZs initiated by FOs.
Open a RZ with recaps in MSSICS and use the appropriate screens (including the AFIP
screen) to complete the RZ.
Assume that permission has previously been collected if:
The initial claim was filed 11/18/2006 or later, or
A redetermination has been completed by the FO 11/18/2006 or later. (See SM 01501.002C.8.
for a description of the redetermination disposition codes found in the CRZD segment
of the SSR). The only exception to this assumption is if the completed redetermination
was opened in MSSICS prior to 11/18/2006. In this case it cannot be assumed that the
financial permission question was asked, because the AFIP screen will only appear
in the MSSICS path for events opened 11/18/2006 and later.
Develop the value of resources owned by or deemed to the recipient unless the tolerance
in SI 02305.100C. or SI 02305.100D. applies. See SI 01140.010 for guidelines on general post-eligibility verification requirements.
If an individual alleges ownership of a resource that SSA records do not reflect,
ask the individual if he/she acquired the resource in the period of review and, if
so, the date he/she acquired the resource. Develop all aspects of the resource beginning
with the month after the month the resource was acquired, subject to any applicable
Develop the equity value of a resource (liquid or nonliquid) when an individual alleges
a debt against the resource and the difference between the equity and Current Market
Value (CMV) would mean the difference between eligibility and ineligibility see SI 01140.042, Determining Equity Value.
EXCEPTION: See SI 01130.200 regarding the value of an automobile.
