WU may be a Group II exception and considered a reason to find disability has ended
without determining the ability to engage in substantial gainful activity (SGA) for
adults or determining that the impairment no longer causes marked and severe functional
limitations for children.
When an individual timely requests reconsideration of an initial or revised medical
cessation determination, he or she has the regulatory right to appear at a disability
hearing unless he or she waives the right to appear.
When a WU issue arises, do not return the claim to the field office (FO) as a no determination
(ND). The PH examiner must complete the actions outlined in section C. below when
WU arises, such as upon receipt of returned mail.
Process a continuation if the PH examiner is able to make a fully favorable determination
with the evidence in the claim(s) folder.
