An interpretation of a provision of the Social Security Act by the Supreme Court of
the United States must be applied as a precedent in all similar cases. When the Supreme
Court issues a decision adverse to SSA, instructions regarding implementation of the
decision are issued as soon as possible. Until instructions are issued, direct questions
regarding the decision to OALC through the PSC or the ARC-MOS to coordinate litigation
activities. See GN 03106.020F. for a hyperlink to OALC telephone numbers.
