DI 28035.030 Original Folder Received in the Disability Determination Services (DDS) After the Review Process Begins
If you eventually locate the lost folder, the DDS associates the original folder with the reconstructed folder based on the following criteria.
A. Determination not completed
If you have not completed a determination, consider the material in the original folder before making the determination.
B. Determination completed
If you prepared a determination and mailed the notice to the beneficiary, review the original folder material and consider whether to reopen the determination under the rules for reopening in DI 27505.001 Conditions for Reopening a Final Determination or Decision.
