Do not schedule an appointment earlier than the month following the date of the notice
in NL 00722.155C. if the individual is making an inquiry concerning their retirement insurance benefit
(RIB) and wants their Month of Election (MOEL) effective the month they attain age
70. The system cannot process advance file cases any earlier than four months prior
to the MOEL.
In most cases, a claimant who continues to work will not lose any benefits if:
they make an appointment,
we establish a date of entitlement prior to the month of attainment of age 70, and
we place them in work suspense through the month of attaining age 70.
In all other situations, follow routine procedures for scheduling appointments.
