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.
