Potential or actual overpayments may also exist on any case that undergoes post adjudicative
review by the Program Service Center-Disability Review Section (PSC-DRS), Disability
Quality Branch (DQB), Office of Disability Operations (ODO), or where the DDS reopens
a favorable decision on its own motion.
Increasingly, the ODO reviews are done after the DDS or the Field Office (FO) has
effectuated a favorable decision and benefits have been initiated. Cases of this type
which are returned to the DDS for a reversal or for further development should contain
wording to alert the DDS to the possibility of reopening and the need for due process.
Process cases reopened on the DDS's own motion according to existing instructions.
