FAA1.E Application Screening : 05 Wire Third Party Query Information (WTPI) - Overview
05 Wire Third Party Query Information (WTPI) - Overview
Use WIRE THIRD PARTY QUERY INFORMATION (WTPI) to view information from the Social Security Administration (SSA) via the Wire-to-Wire Third Party Query (WTPY) system.
 
To access WTPI, key 3 in the ENTER SELECTION (BY NUMBER) field on ININ, and press ENTER.
 
An interface occurs nightly with AZTECS and SSA. WTPY requests are generated by AZTECS when any of the following occur:
 
A new application is registered on REAP
A renewal application is registered on RERE
A program is added to an active case on APMA
A new participant is added to an active case
Participant information is changed on CLIM
Information is changed on SSDO
 
ININ may also be used to manually request WTPY information by keying 4 in the ENTER SELECTION (BY NUMBER) field and keying the participant's Social Security Number (SSN) in the SSN field. A response from SSA is received within 48 hours.
 
WARNING
When WTPI displays the message SSN IS VERIFIED, SSA has verified that the name matches the NUMIDENT information(g).
SSA and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit information displays when it exists for a participant. When the Wire Third Party response indicates that no SSA or SSI benefit records exist, the following message displays:
ONLY THE MOST RECENT WTPY RECORD IS MAINTAINED.
