SI 02901.725 Using the FAX to Reconcile With the SSA-8700, Financial Accountability Statement
States may use the FAX data to reconcile with the SSA-8700, Part C. The Part C totals are fiscal-year-to-date. The FAX totals are discrete each reporting month.
This is what the SSA-8700 looks like.

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.
