Establish evidence of age, relationship, and other factors of entitlement, including

EXAMPLE: The NH is deceased. His child, age 25, is disabled. She elects not to apply for Child
Disability Benefits (CDB) but applies for the LSDP. To evaluate her eligibility for
the LSDP, determine whether the child was disabled and otherwise eligible for CDB
benefits for the month of the NH's death. However, no disability development is necessary
if, for other reasons, the child could not qualify for the LSDP.
