AU Managers are reminded that the federal government regularly intercepts certain federal payments made to clients and former clients - such as income tax refunds - to offset outstanding client food stamp debts.  The federal Economic Stimulus payment described in Field Operations Memo 2008-18 is also subject to intercept for these debts.  If a client calls inquiring about a reduction or loss of an Economic Stimulus payment,  refer the client to the Fraud Investigations and Recoveries Unit at 1-800-462-2607 for information regarding the intercept.
