GN 02408.920 International Direct Deposit (IDD) Payment Reclamation Forms and the International Treasury Services Application (ITS.gov)

A. When the Office of Earnings and International Operations (OEIO) uses forms SSA-1712 CN and SSA-1712

OEIO uses the SSA-1712-CN (Notice of Reclamation – Canada Pmt Made in CAD) to reclaim incorrect Canadian dollar (CAD) payments sent to Canadian financial institutions (FI). OEIO uses the SSA-1712 (Notice of Reclamation) to reclaim incorrect U.S. dollar (USD) payments sent to Canadian FIs. OEIO uses both forms when payments were CAD and USD. These forms and others are available on OEIO’s website, in the International Direct Deposit (IDD) Resource Kit and in this section.

B. Exhibit of SSA-1712 CN (Notice of Reclamation – Canada Pmt Made

To view the form, go to SSA-1712-CN.

C. Exhibit of Form SSA-1712 (Notice of Reclamation)

To view the form, go to SSA-1712.

D. When OEIO uses Form SSA-1713 (Statement of Reclamation Action)

OEIO includes the SSA-1713 whenever OEIO sends a reclamation request directly to a foreign FI. The FI then uses the form to respond to OEIO. This form and others are available on OEIO’s website, in the International Direct Deposit (IDD) Resource Kit, and in this section.

E. Exhibit of the Form SSA-1713

To view the form, go to SSA-1713.

 

F. When technicians use ITS.gov for IDD reclamation requests

The Kansas City Financial Institution (KFC) processes reclamation requests for certain countries when the outstanding amount is $100 or more. Technicians must enter all reclamation requests for KFC through the International Treasury Services application (ITS.gov). Instructions for entering reclamations are available on the ITS.gov help file. KFC processes reclamation requests for the countries listed in the following chart:

NOTE: 

Errors will generate in the ITS.gov application if a technician inputs reclamations through ITS.gov for any unlisted country. For payments sent to banks in Poland, reclamation requests can go to either the FBU in Warsaw, Poland, or KFC. This is because Poland is part of a multi-country contract.
