For reinstatement of benefits for cases that fall under the rules in effect prior
to April 30, 2016, the field office (FO) and teleservice center (TSC) should use the
VDRC screen in the Post Entitlement Online System (POS) to reinstate benefits, following
instructions in MS COMMON 005.030 and TC 11001.130F.
For reinstatement requests that fall under the new rules effective April 30, 2016,
the FO uses the Legislative Suspensions and Reinstatement (LEGI) screen in POS to
reinstate benefits, following instructions in SM 03005.145, SM 03020.180, and MS COMMON
005.023. The TSC will refer any reinstatement requests under the new rules to the
FO because the LEGI screen does not allow future month inputs.
NOTE: At the time of the request for reinstatement, verify the address and bank account
information for all suspended beneficiaries, per GN 02602.040.
