The law requires us to conduct a disability redetermination within one year of the
SSI recipient's 18th birthday or, in lieu of a CDR, whenever we determine that an
age-18 redetermination was required and had not been initiated.
The field office (FO) must make every effort to initiate an age-18 redetermination:
prior to the recipient’s attainment of age 19; or
later if an age-18 redetermination was not performed prior to the recipient’s attainment
of age 19.
For additional information on processing an age 18 redetermination, see DI 13006.025.
NOTE: Prior to the FO sending an age 18 case to the Disability Determination Services (DDS),
the FO must ensure a status change from disabled child (DC) to disabled individual
(DI) on the SSI record, see DI 13006.010A4. To create a record in the Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) for an age-18
redetermination, see DI 81010.232.
