This revision in the EI status of these schools applied to all pending claims. SSA
previously denied claims under the 4-year rule of administrative finality, based on
new and material evidence. SSA considered then reopened as of 8/1/86.
No special effort was made to identify previously denied claims. They were reopened
as they came to SSA's attention in the normal course of events.
No action was taken to revise a previously denied claim unless to do so would, or
would be likely to, result in the payment of benefits to the student or there was
a request for student benefits.
