Since the automated system that performs mandatory CPR selects qualified SSI debts only under control of RECOOP, non-RECOOP debts must be manually coded on the SSR for CPR; i.e., the FO must add a RECOVER FROM TITLE II BENEFITS (K TAC) decision via the Overpayment Decisions (UOPD) screen in MSSICS (See MSOM BUSSR 004.008).
As with automated CPR, once the K TAC has posted to the SSR, the system generates the ROAR notice that informs the debtor about the reduction of his/her title II benefit as payment toward the SSI debt. Do not use the Manual Adjustment Credit and Award Data Entry (MACADE) system to process cross program recovery actions of any kind.
You do not need to tell the debtor in advance and you do not need to obtain the debtor's approval for CPR. The notice produced by the ROAR system will serve as SSA's official notification (see the exhibit for an example of the notice).
IMPORTANT: Until the automated CPR system is changed to select RECOOP cases with regular monthly installments, instructions in SI 02220.020C., Manual CPR for Non-RECOOP SSI debts, will also apply to RECOOP cases with regular monthly installment payments.
NOTE: See SI 02220.025B.2.a. for identifying RECOOP cases, or look at the ARC in the MPMT data on the SSR to see if anything on the account is in RECOOP (ARC of 1, 2, 3, or 4). You can also look at the sequence level ARC in the second field of the OPSQ data, which tells when a sequence is in RECOOP jurisdiction.
