The Disability Determination Services (DDS) may receive cases where eligibility has
previously terminated for a non-disability reason, for example, a termination could
occur following a suspension period of 12 consecutive calendar months. Further, State
conversion reentitlement cases are processed by the DDS.
If the cessation determination is a paper CDR folder, include a remark on an SSA-408 (Route Slip), indicating the type of case and a remark stating what cessation or

If the cessation determination is an electronic folder or needs to be converted to
an electronic folder, please see DI 81010.020 Creating Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) Cases.
