Category 0-E34 is sent to a beneficiary on the same record as the overpaid beneficiary
when the overpayment cannot be recovered from the benefits of the overpaid person.
Generation criteria are as follows:
Notice Code E34 is indicated,
OVERPAYMENT is initially being established, and
No previous overpayment is present on the MBR in the O/U PAY or PAR REC fields.
For more instructions on notifying overpaid beneficiaries, see GN 02201.009
Also, the name of the overpaid beneficiary and the amount of the overpayment must
be provided with the E34 notice code, for use as Fill-ins in paragraph OPT163 . Failure to provide the necessary Fill-ins will result in an ‘invalid entry’ edit
on the MACADE screen, which requires Fill-ins in order to proceed to the next screen.
Example: C*E34,JOHN DOE,150.00.
