If ODO selects a case for a CDR, the PC must attempt to locate the folder. In Title
II multiple entitlement situations, the PC will locate and associate all medical disability
folders. Multiple entitlement’s definition is entitlement to more than one benefit
for Title II. Benefits could include any combination of Disability Insurance Benefits
(DIB), Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB), and Disabled Widow’s(er’s) Benefits (DWB).
NOTE: If you find "multiple entitlements," please include “Multiple Entitlements” on all
After ODO selects a case for a medical CDR, follow these procedures:
Folder(s) in the Processing Center (PC) or Federal Archives and Records Center (FARC)
-- Obtain the folder(s).
Folder(s) in the field office (FO) -- Forward the CDR mailer to the FO, unless case
control query indicates that the case has already been terminated.
For monitoring purposes, the PC will maintain a list of CDR mailers and alerts sent
to the FO. The FO will notify the PC within 2 weeks of receipt of the mailer whether
the folder has been located. If the FO has the folder, it will begin the CDR.
When unable to locate the folder, or it is in a location other than the PC, FARC,
or FO, follow internal special search instructions.
