TN 6 (12-93)
When we have established incapability and selected a payee, we send an advance notice
to the beneficiary or the person who can act on behalf of the beneficiary. See GN 00503.100 for more information on when an advance notice is needed. The purpose of the advance
notice is to:
formally notify the individual that we will appoint a representative payee to receive
benefits on his/her behalf,
provide the name of the representative payee, and
give the individual the opportunity to protest our action.
Advance notices and representative payee notices are processed as shown below:
The FO adjudicates most payee applications on the Representative Payee System (RPS),
and the RPS sends the advance notice. In title II cases, when the FO cannot input
the payee appointment, the PC sends the advance notice.
The system (MCS, MADCAP,T2R,SSI) generates most final payee notices. When the system
cannot produce the notice, PC prepares and sends the notice.
See GN 00503.100 for information on advance notices.
See GN 00503.130 for information on final payee notices.
See NL 00703.763 to NL 00703.769 for advance notice exhibits.
See NL 00703.821 to NL 00703.828 for final payee notice exhibits.
