When a hearing decision affirms FAA's original action, all of the following apply:
Document the case file(g) with the results of the decision.
No case action is necessary when benefits are not continued.
NOAA is not required when benefits are continued and the original agency decision is affirmed, complete all of the following:
Reduce or stop the benefits based on the original determination using the PH Denial Closure Reason Code on AFED or FSED in AZTECS.
Send the Request for Benefits to Continue – Denied Continued Benefits Stopped (C836) notice.
Complete a Potential Overpayment (OP) Referral (FAA‑0526A) form for any months that resulted in incorrect benefits during the period that benefits were continued.
NOTE No overpayment is established when the issue involves either a PRA or NA work requirement noncompliance. Upon receipt of the hearing decision, impose the appropriate sanction or disqualification, allowing for NOAA. (See the appropriate method - Graduated Sanctions or NA Work Requirements Disqualification for additional policy and procedures)
