For Title II awards, the Claims Authorizer (CA) uses the Modernized Claim System (MCS)
when available to process the claim. If MCS is not available, the CA prepares an EF-101.
The Benefit Authorizer (BA) uses MADCAP to complete the award notice. For Title XVI
awards, the system generates a notice for disability awards. For non-disability awards,
the field office (FO) sends a manual notice.
For unfavorable Title II and XVI AC decisions, no notice is sent by the field office
or processing center.
