All requests for additional evidence of disability in Philippine cases should be made by means of an SSA-5526-U3 using interim code 22 (a copy of our agreement with the Foreign Service Post in Manila, Philippines is maintained in INTPSC.) These forms should be addressed to the Foreign Service Post in Manila, Philippines. The Foreign Service Post in Manila, Philippines will perform all necessary development, including the purchase of consultative examinations.
Inasmuch as the folders are not released with the development request, the SSA-5526-U3 should contain clear and concise language to permit ready compliance with the request by the Foreign Service Post in Manila, Philippines.
