When the reviewer has reversed the initial determination and approved the fee agreement,
the following occurs.
The PC reviewer places a copy of the determination in the claim(s) file and returns the file to the
servicing FO. He/She annotates the Form SSA-559 (Transmittal Slip for Claims Folders):
“Fee Agreement Approved - Title XVI CR to take the actions in GN 03960.065.1.b.”
The FO CR follows GN 03940.046 to determine the fee amount and, in concurrent cases, SI 02006.210 to adjust the title II income when the FO receives a copy of the claimant's notice
showing the title II portion of the fee amount.
The FO CR also provides notice of the amount of the fee under the approved agreement and, if
not done already, the past-due benefits amount.
