When an individual is participating in a Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) or similar
program, eView will display a 'Potential Section 301 Case.' A 'Potential Section 301
Case' flag generates an alert to the field office (FO) via the Electronic Disability
Collect System (EDCS) Actions Page: 'CDR Cessation Added - Potential 301 Benefit Continuation.'
If the case is a certified electronic folder (CEF) routed from the FO to the Disability
Determination Services (DDS), add a 'Potential Section 301 Case' flag in the EDCS
to identify that the beneficiary is participating in a VR or similar program. See
DI 81020.085 Certified Electronic Folder Flags (CEF), and DI 14510.010 Procedures for Cases Involving Participation in Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) or
For paper cases, the DDS alerts the FO of the cessation with the remark on an SSA-408
(Route Slip), attached to the outside of the folder annotated with a 'Potential Section
301 Benefits flag - handle per DI 14510.003C.'
