For all additional non-medical development, follow these procedures:
When the FO receives additional non-medical evidence after DDS releases the case to
the FO, take the necessary action. Examples include, change of address, direct deposit,
or tax withholding request etc. If no action is necessary, note the material “NAN”
and place in appropriate section of MDF or fax into the CEF.
For paper folders, prepare form SSA-409 Post Adjudicate Routing. Perform all necessary
action(s) and attached SSA-5002 to document(s) and file in MDF. If no further action
is needed route to the Processing Center-Disability Processing Branch (PC-DPB) or
Payment Center (PC) whichever is appropriate after the retention period.
If the additional evidence requires action that is not the FO's jurisdiction, prepare
form SSA-409 Post Adjudicative Routing. Write the remark “Folder forwarded prior to
expiration of FO retention period for action on recently received non-medical evidence,
see (type of evidence) in file,” on the SSA-409. Place the material in the appropriate
section of the MDF. Staple the SSA-409 to the outside of the folder and address it
to PC-DPB or the PC, whichever is appropriate.
See DI 81010.135 Non-Medical Evidence in the Electronic Folder (EF) for additional instructions.
