Generating Contribution Payment Receipts with the direct debit and balance owed payment methods.
As announced in RED News Bulletin 2003/03 of 18 February 2003, starting from the June payment (July submissions), authorised users will be sent Contribution Payment Receipts for the direct debit and balance owed methods of payment.
For the direct debit method of payment, Contribution Payment Receipts will be sent out when the deadline for submitting requests for direct debit has passed (starting on the 19th of the month for submissions).
Therefore, as of 19 July, Contribution Payment Receipts will be sent out for June payments for all Contribution Account Codes with requests for direct debit that have been accepted.
For payments that result in a credit, receipts will be sent out starting on the 15th of the month after submission.
Unlike the form issued for over-the-counter payments, the Contribution Payment Receipts for the direct debit and balance owed payment methods will not contain over-the-counter header information since this is used only for this method of payment.
Issuing Contribution Payment Receipts for these two methods does not imply a change in the system for paying contributions by direct debit or by bank transfer, since both direct debits and bank transfers, as appropriate, will be taken directly from or paid into the customer account given in the FAN file.
Contribution Payment Receipts do not mean that the contributions have been paid if they are not accompanied by a receipt for payment from the Bank (Direct Debit Notice).
This form contains all the items related to the contributions paid and is proof of an accepted direct debit request that is accepted or proof of filing a request for a Balance Owed to the Social Security Administration, as appropriate. The document will be authenticated with a digital stamp.
