NL 00713.009 ROAR Notices

A. Process -- General

The ROAR system generates a notice advising the beneficiary when an overpayment action is being taken on his/her account. Whenever the beneficiary monthly benefit amount is being changed or a request for a protest has been filed, a notice is generated.

Spanish notices are produced for beneficiaries with LANG-S on the MBR. These paragraphs correspond to the English versions generated for the same specific transaction.
