Determine whether CPD impairment(s) still meets or equals the listing it met or equaled
then, even if it was a Part B listing, or has changed or become obsolete. For detailed discussion
of the MI-related step in meets or equals cases, see DI 28015.005 through DI 28015.060.
If the CPD listing included disabling functional limitations in its criteria (for
example, if it required an extreme limitation or two marked limitations) also consider
functional equivalence in determining whether the listing is still met or equaled.
For details on determining functional equivalence, see DI 25225.000.
Consider functional equivalence for any subsequent CDR if:
disability is found to continue because the impairment still meets or equals the listing
it did before, and
the listing included disabling functional limitations in its criteria.
NOTE: This is the only circumstance in which we consider functional equivalence in an adult
If the CPD impairment(s):
still meets or equals that prior listing, find that the MI is not related to the ability to work, and that disability continues (unless a Group I or Group
II exception applies).
no longer meets or equals that prior listing, find that MI is related to the ability to work Consider the last steps concerning current disability from
