Adjudicate the Martinez claim from the application date of April 1, 2009, through
the title II EOD and apply collateral estoppel to provide title XVI pre-2007 Martinez
relief from the title II EOD through the present.
If adjudication of the Martinez claim results in a denial, do not disturb the title
II allowance. Inform the claimant in the denial notice that we reviewed the earlier
period under the Martinez settlement provisions and found the person not disabled
for that period.
If the Martinez determination is favorable, the FO determines nonmedical eligibility
for the earlier period and effectuates payment.
NOTE:Even though these case characteristics are the most common, you may receive other
types of cases from the FO. The FO will provide specific information in the case file.
