BAs will refer to a reconsideration reviewer (RECONR) all OHO fee petition administrative
review determinations in which an attorney's fee was increased. Usually SSA does not
withhold past-due benefits beyond the initial fee authorization. Therefore, when SSA
released withheld past-due benefits after the initial fee authorization special notice
language concerning responsibility of payment, collection of the fee, and potential
overpayment action by SSA, (if not contained in the OHO notice), will be necessary.
