As in SSI cases, individuals receiving SVB payments can request reconsideration of
PE initial determinations to reduce, suspend or terminate benefits by means of case
review, informal conference or formal conference.
As in SSI cases, a beneficiary appealing a PE initial determination to reduce, suspend
or terminate SVB payments will continue to receive payments if the reconsideration
request is made within 10 days of receipt of the notice of the initial determination
(or later if good cause is established). Payment is not continued or resumed if the
beneficiary has waived the right to payment continuation in writing.
