Claims of Hyatt III Settlement Subclass members (DI 32548.001B.2.) are redetermined, not reopened. The Hyatt III disability redetermination consists of an assessment of the class member’s claim
based on the evidence that was in file when the claim was previously adjudicated and
any new evidence submitted by the individual pertaining to that period. Upon receipt
of the class claim, the DDS will send the class member notice of his/her right to
submit additional evidence, DI 32548.095, Exhibit 6.
The class member’s claim must be redetermined in accordance with DI 32548.001B.4. and current instructions for evaluating disability. If it is determined that the
class member is disabled during the redetermination period, the DDS will then reopen
the claim and assess disability from that time to the present.
