As a result of the DDS' development of medical evidence in an allowed claim filed
by a disabled worker, widow(er), or child, it may appear to the DDS that representative
payee development is necessary; or conversely, that an application from the claimant
instead of a prospective representative payee is needed. In such a case, if the folder
is not yet returned to the FO, the DDS will telephone the FO and furnish the information
the FO needs to make a judgment as to capability and to develop an application from
the appropriate person.
