Totalization involvement does not alter the fact that initial determinations may be
reopened for any reason within 1 year of the notice of initial determination, provided
the determination was not correct at the time it was made (GN 04001.030).
The filing of a totalization application in itself does not constitute new and material
evidence for finding "good cause" to reopen an RSDI determination under the 4-year
administrative finality rule. The prior determination may be reopened only if new
and material evidence is presented which, if available at the time of the earlier
determination, would have resulted in a different determination.
