Retain Title II only denial cases in the FO for six months from the date of the denial
notice, unless the claimant requests reconsideration or other claims activity requires
folder movement (e.g., the claimant files a Retirement Survivors Insurance (RSI) claim).
EXCEPTION: Do not hold for the 6-month retention period cases involving family maximum disabled
widow(er) benefits (DWB) or childhood disability benefits (CDB) where the denied claim
affects the payment of family benefits on a number holder’s SSN and there is a delay
in paying the claimant’s benefits.
