Individuals (“walk-ins”) may inquire about Stieberger by contacting the local FO or OHA office in person, in writing or by telephone. All
individuals who request reopening under the agreement including individuals who request
reopening by contacting an FO or OHA office directly are “responders,” regardless of whether or not they received a notice, and will be provided with a
written acknowledgment of their request for reopening. Statements obtained by the
FO will be forwarded to be associated with the green jacket or, if the case has not
been alerted, to:
SSA, ODIO, Class Action Section
Attn: Stieberger Coordinator
P.O. Box 17369
Baltimore, MD 21298-0050.
ODIO will associate the statement with the systems generated CATS alert and queries
and screen for class membership (see DI 42586.008).
If an individual contacts the PSC or ODIO instead of the FO about being potentially
entitled to Stieberger reopening, the PSC or ODIO will follow DI 42586.007B.
