CAUTION: POTENTIAL ADVERSE REOPENING
Per DI 29001.001B.1., if the sample case is a reopening of either an initial or reconsideration determination,
and correcting the onset date will result in an adverse reopening, alert the DDS to
disability hearing notice requirements or DHU jurisdiction as follows:
If the adverse reopening is of an initial determination, the notice to the claimant
must contain appeal rights to a reconsideration, including the right to a disability
hearing (DI 27501.005C.3.a. and DI 29001.001B.3.a.).
If the adverse reopening is of a reconsideration determination which has been effectuated,
the DHU has jurisdiction and the claimant is notified of the proposed revision and
right to a disability hearing before the revised determination is issued (DI 29001.001B.3.b.).
Refer to DI 27501.005C.2. for procedure for reopening and revision. Refer to DI 27525.001, DI 27525.005 and DI 27540.001.for due process pre-determination notice requirements in adverse reopenings in which
the onset date is revised to a later date.
NOTE: See GN 04440.250C. for adverse reopenings in sample cases that have been inadvertently effectuated prior
to sample review.
