NOTE: If the class member's Dixon claim(s) cannot be located and the presumptions in DI 32521.020 do not apply, the class member must submit evidence pertaining to his/her condition
during the period to be readjudicated. SSA will provide reasonable efforts to assist
the class members in obtaining evidence.
SSA IS NOT required to reconstruct the names of doctors or medical centers which the
claimant visited when the claimant is now unable to recall that information. SSA IS
required to contact ONLY those sources identified by the claimant. If SSA writes to a source requesting a report and no response is received, SSA will
make one follow-up by letter (or phone call). If the evidence received from the treating
source(s) or other medical source(s) is insufficient for adjudication, SSA will recontact
the source(s) for additional information. SSA will not obtain a consultative exam
if the request for information is unsuccessful.
