When the FO is unable to load the CDR reconsideration appeal cases into MSSICS or
EDCS, the MBR and SSR are unable to automatically update the DCF. Cases that are not
in the EDCS will not be visible for tracking and are only available for tracking in
The FO must record a CDR reconsideration appeal with an exclusion for a Title XVI
case using the following actions:
For MSSICS cases, input the CDR reconsideration information in MSSICS. For more information, see MS
MSSICS 020.001 (Appeals - Overview); and
For non-MSSICS cases, use MSSICS direct SSR update
to establish the CDR reconsideration, see MS 00302.001. For more information, see
MS 00302.001 (Direct SSR Update - Overview).
To record a CDR reconsideration appeal with an exclusion for a Title II only case,
use the EDCS Exclusion Appeal (EEAI) screen to input the appeal request in the DCF.
To see additional information on completing the EEAI screen inputs, see CDR 001.025.
The DCF will pass the appeal request and SBC information to the T2R background program,
which will automatically update the MBR. The Title II case will not require a POS
For the Title II case reconsideration, once the appeal information is loaded to the
DCF, the case will become visible in MI Central. EDCS will not be able to automatically
update the location of the appeal case. At the time of the cessation or continuance
determination, the DCF will automatically receive the determination and will automatically
update the MBR.
For a Title II case hearing appeal, after inputting the appeal request using the EEAI
screen, the DCF will automatically create an ALJT2EX tickle. These cases will not
appear in the DCF pending file or in MI Central. When there is a medical decision
on the hearing appeal, the FO must receipt it in the tickle on the DCF. A hearing
affirmation, abandonment, dismissal, or withdrawal will continue to automatically
post to the MBR. Hearing reversals will require a POS input to update the MBR.
