NL 00803.110 Notice of Overpayment Forms

A. Introduction

Notice of Overpayment forms are the same for both manual and automated notices, except that AONS notices treat Form SSA-4017 (Payment Stub) as the last page of the AONS notice.

NOTE: AONS notices do not address penalty notification. However, do not suppress an AONS notice for this reason alone. If you decide to assess a penalty, send a separate penalty notice after release of the AONS notice.

B. Description

In addition to offering the repayment options in C. below, the Notice of Overpayment must give the following information:

  • The cause of the overpayment;

  • The amount of the overpayment and the months it occurred;

  • A statement of the individual's right to appeal the overpayment determination; and

  • The right to request relief from recovery (waiver) of the overpayment.

NOTE: The Notice of Overpayment also has an attachment page, A Detailed Explanation of Your Overpayment, which you must always complete following instructions in NL 00803.125.
