After receipt of the NH's initial inquiry questioning his/her earnings, SSA must provide
a determination to the NH within a reasonable time, but no later than 3 years, 3 months
after the filing of the SSA-7008 or equivalent request for correction of the ER.
This time period may be extended to 3 years, 3 months, and 15 days, only if additional
evidence is being developed. The above limit was established as the result of the
Rivera vs. Heckler Michigan District court decision.
The NH's initial inquiry may be the receipt of an SSA-7008 or similar statement, or
phone inquiry. In IC, enter the information about the NH whose ER is being investigated
for possible inaccuracies on the Number Holder Identification (EIDN) screen. (MSOM
