Group II onset and ending date decisional deficiencies are corrected by the review
component. In these cases, the review component will:
a. annotate all of the adjudicating component’s original determination and medical
assessment forms, as well as notices, in the CEF as “Do Not Process” or “Do Not Release”,
b. code the deficiency in the case processing system,
c. notify the adjudicating component, via an SSA-1774-U5, Request For Corrective Action,
to explain why the determination is not policy compliant,
d. correct the onset or ending date,
e. prepare and release any necessary personalized notices, and
f. route the case to the FO for effectuation
EXCEPTION: If the case has another deficiency or technical corrective action requiring correction
by the adjudicating component, or changing the ending date results in an adverse reopening
of either an initial or a reconsideration case, the review component will follow the
instructions in GN 04440.204B.1 above, to return the case to the adjudicating component for correction.
NOTE: All of the adjudicating component’s original determination and medical assessment
forms, as well as notices, must remain in the CEF as part of the audit trail.
