Prepare an SSA-408 to route a paper folder from the disability determination services
(DDS) to the next destination. When concurrent claims involve two folders, and both
folders are stapled together and are routed to the same location, only one SSA-408
is required (on the top folder). When you split and route two folders to different
locations, prepare an SSA-408 for each folder.
Always complete the “Date,” “To,” and “From” portions and check “Your Jurisdiction.”
NOTE: If no further action is required on the folder and you send the folder to a storage
location, remove all routing forms, flags, and flashes. The SSA-408 should be the
only form left on the folder.
