What is the Social Service Payment System (SSPS)?

·         For more information about the SSPS, see the Social Service Payment System website.

 

What is the SSPS interface?

 

·         ACES receives information from SSPS on clients who receive SSPS payments. The purpose of the interface is to determine if a client is receiving payments from both systems (ACES and SSPS).

 

How often does the SSPS interface run?

 

·         The interface runs:

 

o    When a new AU is screened.

 

o    When adding a person.

 

o    One day prior to the date of an eligibility appointment.

 

What happens when there is a match between SSPS and ACES?

 

·         When ACES finds a match and no income is coded on the EARN screen, it generates two-tiered Alert 292 - SSPS EARNINGS NOT REPORTED TO ACES. The second tier of the alert displays up to six months of SSPS payment and service data.

 

How do I access the SSPS payment information?

 

·         SSPS payment information can be accessed from the LMEN screen.

 

1.    Enter Option P - SSPS Inquiry in the Selection field.

 

2.    Enter the [client’s SSN] in the Client SSN field and <TRANSMIT>.

 

·         The LMEN can also be accessed from the client's EARN screen by pressing <F20>.
