The Social Security Independence and Program Improvements Act of 1994 (P.L. 103-296)
repealed the facility-of-payment provision for benefits paid for months after 12/95.
For more information on readjustment procedures, see GN 02603.010.
Nonpayment of monthly benefits due to the ANP has no effect on the amount of another
person’s benefit (i.e., no adjustment for the family maximum benefits is made). For
more information on deductions before reductions and facility of payment, see GN 02603.020.
For more information about the readjusted rate exclusions, see GN 02603.040B.
The benefit amount of the dependent/survivor in alien nonpayment suspense is not increased
during the readjusted rate period. No action is taken to increase the rates payable
to the remaining beneficiaries unless one of the beneficiaries is no longer subject
to alien suspense.
