The DDS in the Dallas region will furnish the Field Office (FO) with a status report on cases pending in the DDS over 70 days from:

  • The date the case was received in the DDS; or

  • The end of the medically deferred period, if later.

  • Flag the case electronically, or with the SSA-441; and

  • Complete the DDS Report on Pending Disability Claim [SS-RVI-407 (9/83)]-Exhibit 1.

The SS-RVI-407 is a two-page form. The top page should be sent to the DO/BO and the second page should be sent to the DDS unit supervisor. The SS-RVI-407 (9/83) is available through the SSA Regional Office (RO).
