A. General information on the EDCS Routing Form

The field office (FO) uses the EDCS routing form to send folder documentation (i.e., medical evidence submitted by the claimant and not faxed into the Certified Electronic Folder (CEF), a paper Modular Disability Folder (MDF) associated with the CEF) to the receiving office.

  • office address information used to route the case from one office to another;
