XVII. North Carolina educational lottery Interceptions
REVISED 03/01/11 - CHANGE NO. 05-11
B. NCEL Intercept Requirements
1. NCEL uses the same rules for selecting eligible debtors as the North Carolina Department of Revenue (DOR). It also applies the interception in the same order as that of DOR intercepts. Refer to XVII.
2. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provides a file to NCEL each week. Each weekly file replaces the previous week’s file. It reflects EPICS latest claim balances and drops or adds claims depending on the current balance and selection criteria.
3. NCEL sends a notice, DSS-8234, to the debtor regarding the interception and the claim balance. The notice advises the household of one of the following:
a. The amount intercepted, applied, and that the claim is paid in full or,
b. The amount intercepted, applied, and the remaining balance of the claim or,
c. The amount intercepted, applied, and the amount to be refunded.
4. Unlike DOR interceptions, the debtor does not have a right to a hearing or appeal regarding the NCEL interception.
