If a DWB claimant is already or could become entitled to a DIB that exceeds the potential
DWB PIA, a disability determination is not needed on the DWB claim.
Create a report of contact (RPOC) in the Modernized Claims System (MCS) DIB segment
stating that a determination of disability on the DWB claim is not necessary if the
DIB is allowed, due to the higher DIB payment.
NOTE: If a DIB and DWB claim are filed simultaneously and the periods to be adjudicated
differ (e.g., the DIB insured status period and the DWB prescribed period differ),
the field office (FO) should develop both claims. Accurately record all onset, date
last insured, and prescribed period information on the SSA-3367 (Disability Report
- Field Office) to advise the Disability Determination Services (DDS) that a determination
of disability is necessary on both claims.
