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repealed the facility-of-payment provision for benefits paid for months after 12/95;
See (GN 02603.010) - Readjustment Procedures General.
Nonpayment of monthly benefits due to the alien nonpayment provisions has no effect
on the amount of another person’s benefit (i.e., no adjustment for the family maximum
benefits is made), See (GN 02603.020A.) - Deductions-Before Reductions and (GN 02603.040B.) - Readjusted Rate Exclusions.
The benefits 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.
