TN 3 (09-21)
In the concluding statement in the rationale, the adjudicator must clearly indicate:
The current determination (disability continues or no longer disabled);
The basis(es) on which the determination was made (meets, equals, med-voc, capable
of substantial gainful activity (SGA), etc.);
Whether more than one exception applies, or both medical improvement and an exception
apply; the rationale acknowledges all bases for cessation documented in the file.
For a rationale example, see DI 28090.300J;
The basis(es) code(s) from block 11 or 12 of the SSA-832 or SSA-833 (Cessation or Continuance of Disability or Blindness Determination and Transmittal);
For a cessation determination, the month disability ceases and the month of disability termination. For a rationale example, see DI 28090.300H or DI 28090.300I.
If disability ceased in the past, the adjudicator must explain the reason for the
selected date. For a rationale example, see DI 28090.300R.
In extended period of eligibility (EPE) cases, the adjudicator must specify only the
cessation date. The disability termination date is related to work activity and is
SSA's jurisdiction. For a rationale example, see DI 28090.300F.
