If the claimant submitted medical evidence or could be expected to know that it was
submitted, and the evidence was received after the date the determination notice was
released, the claimant must be notified that the evidence was received.
If the claimant did not submit the evidence or could not be expected to know that
additional evidence was submitted, he/she need not be notified. Also, if the additional
evidence may affect the original determination, the claimant need not be notified
but the examiner needs then to follow the instructions in Material Affects the Determination
IMPORTANT: This notice is to be used only when the Disability Determination Services (DDS) determines
that the submission of evidence is not an implied request for an appeal. See The Reconsideration
Process DI 27001.001 if the claimant is implying a desire to appeal the initial determination. If a request
for reopening, see Reopenings and Revisions: General DI 27501.005.
