SI 02901.700 How the FAX Process Works
The FAX system provides the States case-by-case accounting data for Federally administered supplementation. With the FAX information, the States can reconcile accounting data. In this section, we describe the process.
This chart describes how the FAX process works at SSA.
|1||Accounting data are retrieved from each SSI run during a given accounting month.|
|2||At the close of the accounting month, file totals are verified. The tapes are created and shipped to the States.|
|3||OCFO prepares the form SSA-8700.|
|4||Using the SSA-8700, OSSI bills the supplementing States each month. At the end of the fiscal year, OSSI and the States settle that year's accounting.|
