DI 23501.070 Prisoner Case Request for Reconsideration
Unless otherwise indicated, follow existing instructions in Reconsideration Case Processing
- DI 27000.000 for processing requests for reconsideration of medical determinations made by the
disability determination service (DDS) in prisoner cases. Responsibility for reconsideration
determinations of disability-related issues and final notices rests with the DDS.
The field office (FO) develops these cases to the extent possible under existing instructions
prior to forwarding the case to the DDS. Responsibility for reconsideration determinations
when suspension of benefits is contested rests with the FO and other offices, not
with the DDS.
