Changes in an SVB beneficiary's circumstances can affect his/her SVB qualification
status, entitlement and/or payment amount. SSA depends on reports of changes from
SVB beneficiaries, their payees and other sources. SSA employees must determine if
a reported change can be accepted and, if so, determine how the change affects SVB
and to take the necessary action(s) to effectuate the change.
The Goldberg/Kelly due process procedures apply in SVB postentitlement reports having
an adverse effect on the SVB recipient. Beneficiaries are to be provided notification
prior to processing the adverse action to allow sufficient opportunity for him/her to appeal
the adverse action without an interruption in SVB. See SI 02301.300 for Goldberg/Kelly due process procedures.
