Current evidence may be required:
If previous determination appears erroneous.
If advances in medical technology or vocational therapy or technology for a particular
impairment raise a CDR issue.
If error indicated (DI 28020.355 through DI 28020.375):
Establish CDIO with SSA-3500 (SM 01305.825).
Request FO to initiate CDR.
Request DDS to make a CDR determination and an initial determination if there is a new claim. Tell DDS reopening prior determination may be appropriate- refer to DI 27501.000. If prior determination found not to be in error, it must be adopted for new claim.
Forward the case to the FO.
Instructions will be issued if improved treatment methods or changes in vocational
therapy or technology justify conducting CDRs before the scheduled CDR date.
