RM 03812.022 No APP Case

  1. A. 

    “No APP” cases generally consist of claims related material for which a claim for benefits has not been pursued. This material is received in DEBS from the field or other claims component within central office. When these cases are received, examine the case material to determine if an earnings or coverage issue exists which requires handling under this procedure. If the case:

    1. 1. 

      Does not involve an earnings or coverage issue or was referred to DEBS in error (i.e., no allegation of error in the earnings record), return the case to the sender. Annotate the OF-41 to indicate that no further action is required and the material is being returned for proper disposition.

    2. 2. 

      Does involve an earnings or coverage issue, apply the procedure in RM 03812.005.

  2. B. 

    Apply the instruction in 1 above to the No app material involving a disability action, unless the material contains medical evidence such as statements from doctors or other individuals, or statements from social security offices concerning an individual's health. Mark any material containing medical evidence for permanent filing.

  3. C. 

    Stamp the remainder of the material for permanent filing, including Form SSA-721, Statement of Death by Funeral Director.
