Explicitly state the action necessary to correct the deficiency.
If documentation is necessary, specify the type of documentation. Do not direct the
adjudicating component to purchase a consultative examination or tell them how to
otherwise obtain the evidence. For routing and correcting deficient cases, see GN 04440.201E.1.
If the return does not require corrective action by the adjudicating component, include
the statement “No corrective action required”.
NOTE: Check the box “Continued on Attached Sheet,” if you need an additional page to explain
the reason for the return. If you need more than the allotted four continuation pages
use an SSA-1774-U5 Continuation sheet.
