DI 29501.045 Informal Remand of Hearing Cases
An assistance request is significantly different from an informal remand. In an assistance
request, the administrative law judge (ALJ) retains jurisdiction of the claim and
makes the final decision. Informal remands are a pre-hearing request for a decisional
review by the disability determination services (DDS).
