For each notice we send in the supplemental security income (SSI) posteligibility
process, this chapter:
Describes the content of the notice;
Tells when we must send the notice;
Lists special situations that require a particular manual notice;
Provides a chart of acceptable captions and paragraphs for the body of the notice
when standard notice language exists; and
Provides examples of completed notices.
Posteligibility notices tell supplemental security income (SSI) recipients about:
Determinations that affect payment amount or eligibility and the recipient's right
to appeal, including the right to payment continuation when the determination results
in reduction, suspension or termination; and
Other determinations and actions that do not affect payment amount or eligibility.
The charts in NL 00803.025, NL 00803.050, NL 00803.065 and NL
00803.092 are like the charts in NL 00802.001. The charts in NL 00803.001 list the acceptable captions and paragraphs for the SSA-L8155-U2, SSI Notice of Planned
Action; SSA-L8151-U2, SSI Notice of Change; SSA-L8100-U2, SSI Notice of Revised Determination
and the SSA-L8166-U2, SSI Important Information (for computer matching). The instructions
in NL 00802.001B through NL 00802.001C explain how to use the charts to complete a notice and also apply to this subchapter.
Format of manual notices - NL 00801.010.
NOTE: SSA-Publication No. 67-003 (July 1989), “SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, Notice Standards” has comprehensive instructions on notice format.
