Contact [email protected] for more information FAQs Bonus Paid at Successful Closure Bonuses paid at Successful Closure are paid to the CRP when a case is eligible for

successful closure. For someone in supported employment, this means 90 days after the transition to long term supports, assuming that all other successful closure criteria has been met. FAQs Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) Bonus Payment (SSI/SSDI Beneficiaries) SGA earning levels are substantiated initially by the CRP and documentation is submitted to the

VRC to confirm that the SGA earning level has been met for at least three months and that the CRP expects that earnings are to continue. The VRC will issue a confirming authorization to a CRP for $1,000.00, if the SGA earnings level ($1,170 gross per month Non Blind; $1,950 gross per month Blind in 2017) is met for clients receiving SSI/SSDI benefits. Pre-Authorization (Review)

The requirement for pre-approval of Authorizations can disrupt the flow of services Crucial that on-going client services, such as job coaching, not proceed longer than a one month period of time without an Authorization for Payment. Should the CRP continue to provide services beyond a one month period of time without pre-authorization and the corresponding Authorization for Payment, the CRP will not be reimbursed for the services provided for that

month and any following month. Rendered (Review) The authorization for payment/invoice and associated reports must be received in the local BRS office as soon as possible after the service has been completed but no later than ten days after the end of the month in which the service(s) was provided. At the discretion of the Regional Manager, payment of the authorization/invoice may be processed but no more than 60

days after the date of service has been completed/provided. Authorization for payment/invoices received more than 60 days after the service has been provided will not be honored. Exception: Should an error in the issuing of an Authorization for Payment be made, sufficient time will be provided to process the Authorization and submit for processing the payment. Questions?
