Process post-entitlement notices and award certificates in accordance with existing
Instruct Philippine claimants to send all notices which affect their benefits to the
Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) in Manila even if a domestic FO is the resident office;
Send all award certificates or letters informing beneficiaries that a check will be
$4,000 or more to FBU for personal delivery with the check.
Keep these notices separate from those mailed directly to beneficiaries. Use an OF-41
(or similar form) to send the notices to FBU with a remark such as “Notice of check for $4,000 or more for personal delivery.”
