SSA will usually not search for cases in which the amount of wages reported by an
employer is less than the correct amount, but will review any case brought to its
attention. Evidence presented to SSA by the claimant is considered bringing it to
The AERO process will automatically take care of those cases involving an increase
in benefits. Because there is no automatic way to determine if insured status may
now be met, such a case will have to be brought to our attention by the claimant.
If the claimant presents the evidence or asks about an employer reported change, assume
he/she wants us to review the file.
