DI 23022.075 Appeals Processing of Compassionate Allowances Cases
There is no systems notification when the field office (FO) transmits the appeal of an initial claim previously identified as a Compassionate Allowances (CAL) case.
A. Initial claim was not CAL and DDS identifies CAL at the reconsideration level
If the DDS discovers a CAL condition at the reconsideration level, manually update the case to CAL: Y (refer to adding a case to CAL processing in DI 23022.055A) and process using expedited procedures.
B. Request for review at Appeals Council and claimant files a subsequent claim on CAL case
For instructions on processing subsequent disability applications, see DI 51500.000.
