Currently Uncollectible Cases

Legal Authority:

45 CFR 303.11 Case closure criteria

When a case is open but currently uncollectible (or Status 10 cases), all automatic enforcement and establishment procedures are stopped. Cases that are currently uncollectible are given a review date based on the reason.

Note: These cases are open but also have a reason why they are currently uncollectible with a date by which the case worker/attorney should review the case. The cases are included as open cases in the Performance Measures report for each office.
