GLPSC-DPB contacts the RRB in Chicago and requests a copy of all medical, vocational,
and any other pertinent evidence from the RRB file.
If evidence is insufficient to adjudicate the current disability claim(s), GLPSC-DPB
develops the medical evidence of record (MER) directly from the treating sources listed
on the EDCS 3368 (Adult Disability Report), including any Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA) medical facilities.
GLPSC-DPB contacts the appropriate State DDS for assistance prior to adjudicating
the claim if a consultative examination (CE) is needed. See Processing Disability
Cases Involving Railroad (RR) Service, Changed Identity, Emergency Clause Agreements,
or Unresolved Jurisdiction Cases, DI 20101.040A.3.
