To help the user select the correct case, the eView Case Display screen shows the
following information: Client Name, CEF indicator, DOB, Level, Claim Type, Filing
Date, Status, Office Code, Office Type and Status Date.
This column displays the adjudicative level of the case (i.e., Initial, Reconsideration,
Hearing, Appeals Council or Federal Court) showing the most recent, based on the filing
This column displays the applicable claim types (e.g., DWB, CDB, DI, etc.) on the
mainframe and entered in EDCS for this claimant’s SSN.
This column displays the most recent claim filing date or appeal filing date.
a. For Title II, from Modernized Claim System (MCS):
Initial claims level- the Protective Filing Date on the File Date Determination Screen
(FDDS) screen will be shown as the filing date.
Reconsideration level - the Date Recon Filed on the (RCN2) screen will be shown as
the filing date.
Hearing level - the Date Hearing Filed on the Hearing Request 2 (HNG2) screen will
be shown as the filing date.
NOTE: The filing date for MCS exclusion cases (DWB, CDB) is input by the CR on the Number
Holder Information screen in EDCS.
b. For Title XVI, from Modernized Supplemental Security Income Claims System (MSSICS)
For Initial claims the Protective Filing Date on the SSI Claims Application (ACLM)
screen is used. If it is not available, the Effective Filing Date is used.
c. Initial Case Advances to Reconsideration or Hearing Levels
If an initial case is advanced to a higher adjudicative level (reconsideration or
hearing), the subsequent levels of the case will be linked to the initial case. In
eView, the level displayed represents the highest adjudicative level that the case
has reached. The filing date displayed shows the filing date of the most recent appeal
NOTE: If the initial case was not processed through EDCS as a CEF, the appeal is excluded
from CEF per Certified Electronic Folder (CEF) Exclusions - DI 81010.030. This does not apply to cases converted to CEF immediately after IDA certification,
i.e. bucket cases.
Always look here to determine the most recent status of a case. The possible codes
Pending – A case is pending in a FO, DDS, ODAR or OQA and processing has not been
completed. Check the Office Type column to determine the type of office where the
case is pending
NOTE: Offices that are able to fully support the electronic process will show a status
Transferred – A claim has been transferred from one component to another component
NOTE: Once a claim reaches an office that cannot fully update the EF (e.g., PC), the claim
will be set to “Transferred” status in that office, meaning that the EF can determine
only that the case was transferred to that office
Closed - A closed case will always show an office type of FO because the jurisdiction
of a closed case is the office to which the case was returned for filing (not the
office that made the decision to close the case). The decision code that follows the
closed status reveals whether the FO or DDS entered the decision for the case.
A case can be closed by the FO with a decision code of:
FD = FO Denial
FN = FO No Determination
A case can be closed by the DDS with a decision code of:
AL = Allowed
CP = Closed Period
DE = Denial
ND = No Determination
Manual Clearance – Due to a processing problem, the case could not be closed electronically;
therefore the FO has to manually clear the claim to load a new claim or appeal. Only
FO staff with a management profile (MSS and above) can manually clear an eDib case.
This column displays the office code that has jurisdiction of the case. (See Office
Code Field - DI 81005.010)
This column displays the office type with jurisdiction of the case (e.g., FO, OQA,
ODAR, or DDS).
This column displays the date of the last known status change.
