Form H1000-A, Notice of Application, Form H1000-B, Record of Case Action, and Form H1000-C, Secondary Client Input, are manual forms used in all programs to report applications, the subsequent denial or certification of eligibility, and changes and deletions to information for certified and denied cases. Use a separate Form H1000-A, Form H1000-B or Form H1000-C to report actions taken in each individual program.

Form H1000-A is a four-part form. Each part has the same control number.

  • Part 1, Notice of Application (NOA) is a short form that
    • indicates that an application was filed and the date filed, and
    • gives information for an NOA report to field staff about individual information already in the computer file.
  • Part 2, Input Document, is a page advisors use for handwritten entries during the decision process. Use the input document to
    • report the final disposition of an application,
    • correct Items 01 through 38 already sent on the NOA,
    • authorize the issuance of benefits, or
    • establish a central file on all individual data.
  • Part 3, Case Record Copy, is a carbon copy of Part 2. It contains information on the NOA and the disposition of an application for audits.
  • Part 4, Case Index Card, is a carbon copy of the NOA used to
    • make a central file of pending applications in the local office, and
    • report changes on pending applications.

Form H1000-B is a three-part form. The assigned case number and sequence number appears on all copies of the form. To request Form H1000-B, use Form H1004, Request for Form H1000-B.

  • Part 1, Record of Case Action, is a computer-generated form that shows current case information.
  • Use the Part 2, Input Document, to
    • update information;
    • report the disposition of a redetermination; or
    • authorize, adjust, or cancel benefits.
  • Part 3, Case Record Copy, is identical to Part 2, Input Document. All items entered on the input document appear on the Case Record Copy.

Form H1000-C is a one-part form. Use this form to enter

  • start and end dates for PRA penalties and good cause,
  • finger image code and vun, and
  • disqualifications and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) work requirement countable months.

Advisors must submit Form H1000-A or Form H1000-B with Form H1000-C.

0 — No insurance.

1 — Medicare premium paid by state.

The presence of a code 1 or 3 indicates SSA validated the number and the number cannot be changed on Form H1000-B and Form H1000-C.

SAVERR also sends a message to LSIS to set the archive date on inactive individual records with Code Z, but does not change the code.

SAVERR automatically deletes the finger Code I or Z when LSIS notifies SAVERR that it purged the finger image record. The LSIS purges the finger image record after the individual is inactive for 12 months.

Changing, Correcting or Deleting Finger Image Codes

Finger image exemption codes remain on SAVERR until it purges the individual record.

If the advisor needs to change ... to ... then ...
Code Z Code Y, enter the new code on Form H1000-C.
an exemption code Code Y, enter the new code and VUN, on Form H1000-C.
an exemption code another exemption code, enter the new code on Form H1000-C.
