Are you curious on what to do when you have a CP who was placed in non-cooperation status for not pinning the card prior to the COVID19 change for non-cooperation, the case was set to close but those CP’s have been placed back in cooperation status and now we have money on UNDL?
Offices should reach out to the CP about pinning the debit card or requesting a new card if they do not have the old one. If you are not successful getting the CP to pin the card within 30 days, request a refund of the UNDL and terminate the IWO to stop further collections. To prevent an income assignment from reissuing, take off the verification code on the APEU and leave it blank (do not update with “U” as that triggers a letter). You should keep a list of these cases to check after the non-cooperation process is reinstated and if the card is still not pinned then update non coop again.
