The processing component (e.g., DDS or the Office of Disability Operations (ODO))
prepares or releases a Decision Notice when statutory benefit continuation language
(SBC) applies (i.e., a medical cessation). The determination notice is released following
processing of the SSA-831, SSA-832, or SSA-833. The DDS does not hold the case awaiting
a claimant response.
For a discussion of due process policy and due process notices, see Policy - Due Process
for Adverse Reopenings, DI 27525.001.
For additional information on the types of cases excluded from statutory benefit continuation,
