GN 03107.200 Processing Center (PC) Responsibilities (EAP)

Procedure

1. PC Review

If the PC receives the EAP request from the FO (GN 03107.150C.) then the reconsideration reviewer will review the claims folder to make certain that all pertinent eligibility factors are met.

2. Eligibility Factors Established

If all eligibility factors are established, forward the file to:

Social Security Administration
Due Process Team
Office of Income Security Program
2-B-24 Operations.
6401 Security Boulevard
Baltimore, Maryland 21235-6401

3. Eligibility Factor Not Met

If an eligibility factor is not met:

  1. Advise the claimant (and representative) via a letter that:

    • EAP does not apply.

    • A denied EAP request is considered a request for a hearing.

    • The folder is being forwarded to the appropriate ODAR office, and that office will contact him/her.

      NOTE: Put the address of the ODAR office to which the file is sent in the letter. Do not add an appeal paragraph as denying the use of EAP is not an initial determination.

  2. Forward the file to the appropriate ODAR office.
