Follow these procedures when the SVB beneficiary or legal guardian requests voluntary
termination of SVB. If a request for voluntary termination is made by a representative
payee who is not the SVB individual's legal guardian, follow VB 01505.012.
A written voluntary termination request must be filed with SSA and:
be signed and dated by the beneficiary or legal guardian;
state the reason for the termination request;
describe the possible effects of the termination and state that the individual understands
the effects (including the need to pay back or return SVB payments, when applicable);
explain that an appeal (or a new SVB application) filed within the 60-day appeal period
will cancel the termination request; and
acknowledge that the filing of a new SVB application after the 60-day appeal period
expires precludes entitlement earlier than the month the new application is filed.
The FO or CPS will:
Process the N19 input to terminate SVB;
Issue a termination notice including appeal rights (see VB 01505.100); and
Post termination information on the San Francisco SVB Intranet site.
NOTE: The FO will send all voluntary termination documentation to the CPS after completion
of the above actions for retention with the SVB folder.
The FBU will fax and then mail the request to the servicing CPS. The CPS will process
the voluntary termination per VB 01505.011C.
