covered by a previously denied claim, refer the case:
to the reconsideration disability examiner (REDE) in the Office of Disability Operations,
to the disability processing specialist (DPS) in the Processing Center.
When the rules of administrative finality warrant reopening or revision, the REDE/DPS
can adopt the DDS determination and establish an onset that invades a prior period
