B. IDD enrollment forms in alphanumerical order

Use a separate SSA-1199 (Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form) for each IDD country. The suffix that appears after the form number designates the country for which we use the form.

The following chart displays the forms used for all IDD countries in alphanumeric order, by form suffix, in the second column. This chart will help you find the POMS reference you need to complete a particular form when you only have the form number.

EXAMPLE: If you want to find the POMS instructions for completing the SSA-1199-OP3, skim through the form suffixes in the second column until you reach those that begin with the letter “O.” They all begin with “OP.” All suffixes beginning with OP1 appear first, followed by suffixes that begin with OP2. After OP2, you see OP20 through OP26, and then OP3. As shown in the chart, when you locate the OP3, you see that GN 02402.310E provides the instructions you need to complete Form SSA-1199-OP3.

GN 02402.220 Updating International Direct Deposit to the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR)

A. Policy for updating IDD to the MBR

International Direct Deposit (IDD) data is retained on the MBR in the same fields that are used to retain U.S. direct deposit information. However, the Social Security Administration (SSA) creates a pseudo routing/transit number (RTN) for IDD by adding a two-digit prefix to the foreign bank/branch number. For some countries, part or all of the bank/branch number must be included in the Depositor Account Number (DAN). For countries included in multi-country contracts, the two-digit prefix identifies the processor bank, and the first character of the DAN is a letter that identifies the country. The exception is Greece, which is under a multi-country contract but has a separate two-digit prefix.

IMPORTANT: 

It is absolutely crucial to add this information:

  • use the correct RTN prefix code;

  • include the foreign bank information in the RTN and DAN fields; and

  • include the country letter for any country included in a multi-country contract, when this is shown in the chart at GN 02402.220B.2. in this section.

B. Description - International Direct Deposit (IDD) RTN prefix codes

1. Table - RTN prefix codes

The two-digit IDD RTN prefix is different for each country or contractor bank. The first digit of the prefix is always a “5,” “6,” or “7,” which identifies the payment method as IDD.

The two-position RTN prefix codes currently in use are as follows:

C. Process - routing of edits

All rejects relating to direct deposit actions transmitted through ITS.gov are routed to Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Edits relating to IDD actions transmitted by a Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) are sent to the Office of International Operations (OIO). If the FBU has access to IWS-LAN, the edits are routed to the transmitting office. Edits relating to IDD actions transmitted by a field office (FO) are sent to that office.
