Find MI is related to ability to work only if the beneficiary’s RFC increased, based
on changes in symptoms, signs, and laboratory findings.
CDRs may require more than one type of RFC assessment. For a detailed description
of the types of RFC assessments that may be required, see DI 28015.850.
For Title XVI recipients originally allowed as children, and who attained age 18 before
08/22/96, apply the CDR evaluation process described in DI 28005.016 and DI 28005.017.
See Public Law 104-193 for Title XVI recipients originally allowed as children who
attained age 18 on 08/22/96 or later located in DI 23570.006.
Certain cases require a disability redetermination instead of a CDR. If we originally
allowed the individual as a Title XVI child, and there has been no age-18 disability
redetermination, follow the instructions in DI 28005.003.
