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.
The agreement represented by this authorization remains in effect until cancelled 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 a 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.
