MAPS must process SCEs one at a time. In some instances, a beneficiary may report
two SCEs within a short time frame. If the beneficiary reports two SCEs, the first
report must be processed to completion before action is taken on the second report.
EXAMPLE 1: Beneficiary reports more than one SCE
Carol Jones calls the FO on March 21, 2014 to report that she and her spouse have
separated. She doesn't have time to complete the update. The CR keys this on the Changing
Event screen and mails an SSA-1026-OCR-SM-SCE to Mrs. Jones for completion. She calls
again on April 17, 2014 to report that she and her spouse are now living together
The CR will take the following actions:
Record this information about the second report and annotate the Development Worksheet
When the beneficiary returns the SSA-1026-OCR-SM-SCE for the first report, process
it to completion.
When the first report is completed, process the second SCE using the same procedure,
beginning with the input on the Changing Event screen.
The first report will affect the April subsidy. The second event, which was reported
in April, will affect the May subsidy.
EXAMPLE 2: Beneficiary reports more than one SCE in a short timeframe
Harry Calish contacts the N8NN on March 2, 2014. He reports that he and his spouse
have separated. He is unable to complete the update at that time. An SCE form is mailed
out to him. He calls back on March 19, 2014 to report that he and his spouse are back
together. He has not returned the SSA-1026-OCR-SM-SCE.
Since the self-cancelling events both occurred in the same month, the CR takes the
Cancel the SCE by removing the posted event from the “Changing Event” screen found
at the top of the Development Worksheet (DWMP) screen. Removing the event cancels
the update and deletes the 90-day termination diary;
Advise Mr. Calish not to return the SSA-1026-OCR-SM-SCE; and
Complete a Report of Contact outlining the reason for cancelling the SCE.
