This is to inform the public that MISSA have started conducting a beneficiary screening in order to identify beneficiaries who may:
- no longer qualify for continued benefits as they may have passed away (for all beneficiaries).
- have remarried (for surviving spouses); have married (for surviving children).
- have found gainful work/employment (for medical retirees).
- have stopped going to school (for surviving children aged 18 to 22 years).
- have left the RMI permanently (for non-citizens).
- Starting January 4, 2016, a two-page questionnaire shall be made available at the MISSA Offices in Majuro and Ebeye. For those living off-island, the same form may also be downloaded from the MISSA website www.rmimissa.org by clicking on Forms, then choose Questionnaire on beneficiary screening. For off-island beneficiaries with mailing addresses, MISSA shall mail them the form. MISSA shall also coordinate with the RMI offices in Honolulu and U.S. mainland to assist Marshallese retirees living in nearby areas.
- For those living in Majuro and Ebeye, the completed questionnaire and valid identification cards with their pictures, current addresses and contact numbers shown in the cards (i.e. passport, state ID, driver’s license) must be submitted in person to MISSA on or before the release of their January 2016 benefits. The January benefit checks will be ready for distribution on January 25th. Failure to do so may result to MISSA putting on-hold their benefit checks for the month of January 2016 and succeeding months. If off-island, the completed survey form, together with a colored photocopy of a valid photo ID may be mailed to MISSA, P.O. Box 175, Majuro, Marshall Islands MH 96960. A copy of the survey form together with a scanned colored copy of his/her valid photo ID will be accepted and may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t send the photo ID by FAX.
- On-island beneficiaries who cannot report to MISSA in person due to serious sickness, being bed-ridden or too-old, and for any reasons should notify MISSA. A MISSA representative may come to visit them. For those living in the outer islands, a medical certificate signed by a local doctor or government official may be accepted or they may call NTA so that MISSA may be notified.
- All off-island beneficiaries who fail to provide MISSA with the completed questionnaire and valid IDs by March 31, 2016 will have their April 2016 benefits put on hold until this requirement is complied with. Further, if MISSA will not receive such information by December 31, 2016, the Administration may permanently stop paying their benefits.
- To identify beneficiaries who may have passed away but continue to receive benefits, MISSA shall undertake a thorough review of the death registry of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Health and the Outer Island Dispensary System. Once a beneficiary is confirmed to have died, MISSA shall immediately stop his/her benefits. MISSA shall also give a cash reward to any person who will provide information that will lead to the discovery of fraudulent acts of relatives of deceased beneficiaries who are scheming to continue to receive MISSA benefits after the death of the beneficiaries; surviving spouses and children who may have remarried or married, respectively; medical retirees who have recovered from disability and are already working. Any information received by MISSA from informants shall be treated with strict confidentiality.
- In the event that a beneficiary fails to cash his/her benefit checks for six (6) consecutive months, subsequent benefits shall be suspended until the beneficiary personally reports to MISSA or provides evidence (acceptable to MISSA) of his/her being alive.
For further information, please contact our Claims Department at 625-3101 or our Ebeye office at 329-3788. All beneficiaries concerned are enjoined to cooperate and comply with these guidelines to avoid delay in the release of their benefit checks.
