When a noncitizen requests a statement of no debt, take the following actions:
NOTE: Before May 1, 1974, citizenship was not an eligibility factor, so the client was entitled to benefits and there was no overpayment.
Our records show that the person received benefits that they were entitled to, or received no benefits in the past 2 years, and owes no money to DHS.
If there is an outstanding client error overpayment, see step 5.
NOTE: If a former client wants to repay any or all of their benefits, accept the payment. Repayment is not a condition for receiving a statement of no debt, unless a client error overpayment exists.
