A claim for a disability benefit (DIB, Freeze, DWB, or CDB), which is DDS jurisdiction,
see Disability Determination Services (DDS) and Social Security Administration (SSA)
Jurisdictions-Initial and Subsequent Cases - DI 20101.001, may be filed concurrently with an ESRD claim. In this situation, place medical evidence
obtained in connection with the ESRD claim in the official folder, and forward to
the DDS. If the official folder is paper, place the medical evidence in section F
Medical Evidence (Yellow Back) of the Modular Disability Folder (MDF). If the official
folder is electronic, fax the medical evidence to section F of the Certified Electronic
Folder (EF), and then mail the original to the DDS.
Route separately a concurrently filed Retirement Survivor Insurance (RSI) claim that
does not require a disability determination to the appropriate PSC.
In all multiple claims situations, after adjudication, route all ESRD claims material

NOTE: This procedure applies to disability-related claims, and technical denials.
Use the Modernized Claims System Earnings Computation (MCS EC) process to adjudicate
most ESRD claims when the claimant is filing on his/her own SSN. When an individual
files on a spouse’s or parent’s SSN and the claim is allowed, adjudicate using an
A101 (Automated Determination of Award). If the claim is denied, manually clear the
case in MCS and complete all entries on the MADCAP Direct Data Entry (MACADE) screens
for a Determination of Disallowance.
