SPECIAL NOTICE TO JOINT ACCOUNT HOLDERS
Joint account holders should immediately advise both the Government agency and the financial institution of the death of a beneficiary. Funds deposited after the date of death or ineligibility,
except for salary payments, are to be returned to the Government agency. The Government agency
will then make a determination regarding survivor rights, calculate survivor benefit payments, if any,
and begin payments.
CANCELLATION
The agreement represented by this authorization remains in effect until canceled by the recipient by notice to the Federal agency or by the death or legal incapacity of the recipient. Upon cancellation by the recipient, the recipient should notify the receiving financial institution that he/she is
doing so.
The agreement represented by this authorization may be cancelled by the financial institution
by providing the recipient a written notice 30 days in advance of the cancellation date. The recipient
must immediately advise the Federal agency if the authorization is cancelled by the financial institution. The financial institution cannot cancel the authorization by advice to the Government agency.
CHANGING RECEIVING FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
The payee’s Direct Deposit will continue to be received by the selected financial institution until
the Government agency is notified by the payee that the payee wishes to change the financial institution receiving the Direct Deposit. To effect this change, the payee will complete the new SF 1199A
at the newly selected financial institution. It is recommended that the payee maintain accounts at
both financial institutions until the transition is complete, i.e. after the new financial institution receives
the payee’s Direct Deposit payment.
FALSE STATEMENTS OR FRAUDULENT CLAIMS
Federal law provides a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment for not more than five (5)
years or both for presenting a false statement or making a fraudulent claim.
