The field office (FO) provides the Disability Determination Service (DDS) and the
Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) with the claimant’s AOD, POD,
DFI, and DLI and alerts the DDS the case is an MQGE claim. If a claimant is potentially
entitled to both MQGE and DIB benefits with different DFIs, DLIs, and PODs, the FO
must indicate this on the SSA-3367-F5 (Disability Report — Field Office), to alert
the DDS to develop evidence based on multiple onset dates.
