COVID-19 Interim Assistance Reimbursement agreements

Counties can be reimbursed for General Assistance/General Relief paid to claimants from retroactive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.  One condition of this reimbursement is the claimant signing an agreement for interim assistance reimbursement called the SSP 14.

The Social Security Administration has agreed to allow telephone attestations instead of wet signatures on the SSP 14 form for the duration of the COVID-19 state of emergency.  (ACL 20-64, June 4, 2020.)
