State Supplemental Program (SSP) is the state-funded portion of SSI that is paid to certain SSI recipients. SSP regulations were amended to include overpayments and the recovery of overpayments to clients. 

The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) as part of its interagency service agreement (ISA) with the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) is responsible for identifying overpayments for the State Supplement Program (SSP) of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.  Effective May 6, 2019, the SSP overpayment recovery process will be automated in BEACON.  UMMS will create the SSP overpayment referrals and transmit the information to the Department via a daily file exchange.  Upon receipt, BEACON will process the information and proceed with the automated process of creating an overpayment obligation.  UMMS will be responsible for the recoupment of active SSP benefits towards overpayments whereas the Department will process SSP collections from closed cases.
