Be alert to an ESRD denial of a claimant age 65 or older who does not have age 65 HI/SMI. Regardless of the claimant's insured status, if there is no indication that the FO is developing either HI or SMI based on age 65, notify the FO (and send them a copy of the HCFA-43 and the SSA-831-U5) that protective filing exists for claimant. Tell them if it has not been done, the claimant should be given an explanation of and an opportunity to file for age 65 (premium if uninsured) HI and/or SMI if he or she meets all of the eligibility requirements.
