BENDEX provides Social Security benefit data and Medicare data for clients. The following information is provided on the screen:
The Department uses monthly BENDEX information for central budgeting of regular Social Security benefits. When the Social Security benefit amount centrally budgeted differs from the amount claimed by the client, complete an SOLQ inquiry. If SOLQ confirms the client's statement, refer the discrepancy to the SSA Programs Control Unit (SSA/PCU). If SOLQ does not confirm the client's statement, obtain other proof of the amount received and refer to SSA/PCU.
