C. Procedure

The numbers in Part C of the example above refer to “field numbers” assigned to the FAX trailer record - see SI 02901.760.

Example:Item 5, “Double Check Negotiations, Federal - 29 +31” means trailer field 29 (DCNs - Federal Amount - current FY) plus trailer field 31 (DCNs - Federal amount - prior FY) equals the adjusted (because the 8700 is F-Y-T-D) DCN Federal total on the SSA-8700.

NOTE: Sometimes, a (paper) FAX Addendum is used to explain certain differences between the tape totals and the SSA-8700. Addendum items represent

  • Reversals of Cancelled Check Credits

  • Multi-State Windfall offsets

  • Processing errors requiring manual adjustments.
