Disclaimers
Disclaimer
Users of this data should understand that some of the intercepted prize winnings are split between multiple districts. In this situation, a record of the intercept would appear in each of the affected districts. The total amount intercepted won’t change but the total number of intercepts may be slightly larger than what appears on the file from the Gaming Commission to OTDA.
Limitations
Users of this data should understand that some of the intercepted prize winnings are split between multiple districts. In this situation, a record of the intercept would appear in each of the affected districts. The total amount intercepted won’t change but the total number of intercepts may be slightly larger than what appears on the file from the Gaming Commission to OTDA. A recipient’s PA obligation is based on the prorated share of the benefits issued within the last ten (10) years. Additionally, some payment types are not eligible for the LIM. Therefore, a recipient’s payment history may not include all of the PA benefits issued by the SSDs. Excess intercepts result from process timing issue. This includes a recipient, current or former, who claims multiple prizes within a short amount of time (hours or days). Another situation would include a change to a recipient’s PA obligation which can take up to 60 days to be processed.
