For purposes of disability adjudication an individual is an adult and subject to the
adult disability standards upon attainment of age 18. An age 18 case is any case in
which the individual was eligible in the month before the month of attainment of age
18, attained age 18 on or after August 22, 1996, and for whom a disability redetermination
or CDR using the adult standard was not performed after the attainment of age 18.
NOTE: An age 18 disability redetermination is never applicable to an individual who
attained age 18 before August 22, 1996.
