When the claim(s) is located and the individual is a class member entitled to relief,
the NY ODD (or the appropriate DDS) reopens and develops the Dixon claim(s) from the earliest date based on the application(s) which results in class
membership up to the:
alleged onset date (AOD) (including AOD in later onset date allowance cases or date
of filing (DOF) in title XVI cases), covered by any subsequent claim(s) that is denied
for any reason after July 19, 1983, or for a reason other than not severe on or before
July 19, 1983, or established onset date (EOD) in a subsequent allowance (regardless
of whether the subsequent allowance is continuing, ceased or was a closed period),
present where no subsequent applications have been filed.
When readjudicating the Dixon claim(s), SSA will ONLY consider subsequent impairment(s)
that can reasonably be said to be related to the impairment(s) which provided the
basis for the determination in the Dixon claim(s).
