When an agreement has been reached that there may have been an IPV, the WIU investigator attempts to contact the individual to offer the IM-161 Waiver . If the investigator is unable to reach the individual, WIU returns the FSD/WIU Tracking sheet with the IM-161 Waiver and IM-161A Withdrawal indicating the individual was not offered the opportunity to waive the hearing.
Initiate the ADH by:
- entering Y in the ADH field on the CARS Change Claim Information (OVCC) screen, and
- forwarding the IM-160 Advance Notice of Your Administrative Disqualification Hearing, IM-161 Waiver, IM-161A Withdrawal and the FSD/WIU Investigation Tracking Sheet to the Hearing Unit.
The FSD/WIU Tracking Form must state that the IM-161 was not offered because the individual could not be reached.
