DI 11020.010 Childhood Disability Benefit (CDB) Applications
Take a new CDB application on the Modernized Claim System (MCS) along with the SSA-3368-BK
and SSA-3367 in the following situations:
An initial claim for child's insurance benefits is filed, the child is age 17 1/2
or older, and alleges a disability.
A subsequent claim for child's insurance benefits is filed, the child was correctly
terminated at age 18 or later, and the child is now filing based on a disability that
began after the prior benefits were terminated.
A subsequent claim for child's insurance benefits is filed, the child was terminated
at age 18 or later, and the child is now filing more than 4 years after the termination,
based on a disability that began prior to termination.
To determine if the claim can be entered into the Electronic Disability Collect System
DI 81010.020 Creating Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) Cases; and
DI 81010.025 Completing Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) Forms for Initial Claims.
If the claim is an EDCS exclusion, see DI 81010.030 “Certified Electronic Folder (CEF) Exclusions and Limitations”.
For additional information about applications for child's benefits and for instructions

NOTE: If the number holder (NH) is filing for Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) or Retirement
Insurance Benefits (RIB), defer taking and developing the CDB claim, like the other
auxiliaries, until the NH is found disabled or the RIB is adjudicated.
