FOs will coordinate the processing of title XVI age 18 disability redetermination
and critical birthday cases in the PE ODS system. If the individual is on the PE ODS
for an age 18 critical birthday redetermination, FOs will conduct the age 18 disability
redetermination interview at the same time. FOs can also refer to the “DIAR” segment of the SSID for a “KB” diary as an indication of a critical birthday. All cases in which a “KB” diary is present due to attainment of age, will require a disability redetermination
by the DDS.
Age 18 cases are reflected in the DCF as a type 1 (medical CDR), with the category
legend of “age 18/DDS”, and an event legend of “direct release”.
The DCF may occasionally contain cases that are found not to meet the non-medical
criteria for a disability redetermination. FOs should enter a code 7 (SSR/MBR condition)
and apply their current screenout criteria with the exception of“...a fully developed CDR by the DDS/ALJ done within the last 12 months.”
