Review a repatriate's ability to repay benefits as follows:
A repatriate's ability to repay exists when the amount of resources expected to be available to them within a period of one year, exceeds their continuing needs.
Review the type of resources and personal property and the method used in determining their value. Do not count any resources that are for a future contingency, such as life insurance.
If an ACF-120 is unavailable, have the client complete a generic repayment agreement and explain their rights under the Privacy Act.
NOTE: The client must complete an ACF-120, or generic repayment agreement, even if they do not have the ability to repay.
NOTE: If the repatriate assigns a claim to the U.S. Government, also send HHS a copy of pp 262, Assignment of Claim to United States. If this form is unavailable, have the client complete a generic promissory note.
If benefits total $50 or more, repayment is desired. If the repatriate voluntarily wants to repay, advise them of the total amount spent in their behalf.
