Eligibility Determination and Benefits Calculation

Change in Circumstances

E06. CIC - Repayment Agreement

Description

At times, a learner may receive a benefit that has to be repaid. These repayable benefits differ from other overpayments because they are not appealable. Therefore the overpayment is turned into a debt immediately. The user has to manually create a Repayment Liability Case to capture the repayable benefit information.

Business Rules/Criteria/Standards

When a Repayment Agreement is signed, the amount owing automatically becomes a debt to be recovered (no appeal option).

Repayment Liability Case is attached to the Product Delivery Case (PDC), not Integrated Case (IC). Therefore the liability has to be created first and then can create Repayment Agreement Evidence.

If the Repayment Liability Evidence is entered incorrectly, or requires a change, e.g. if the original amount is higher or lower than required, a new manual liability PDC must be created for the difference.

Note
Two evidence records cannot be entered for the same start date within the same liability case. If the original amount is higher than required, “Write Off” the Instruction Line Item (ILI) for the specified amount and the outstanding amount will reflect the difference.

Negative amounts cannot be entered on the liability evidence screens. If the total liability amount was entered in error, “Reverse” the ILI and the outstanding amount will be set to $0.
