DI 81010.045 Data Repropagation in Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS)
Repropagation of data in EDCS:
Is a process similar to that of initial data propagation from SSA's mainframe systems.
Causes the system to check for data on the mainframe systems for the selected EDCS case.
Occurs automatically when the jurisdiction of the case is transferred, or you can choose to “REPROP” from the Case Disability Selection page in EDCS without transferring.
Is not apparent to the user if no changes have been made to the mainframe since original data propagation.
Updates some fields in EDCS, but does NOT replace EDCS entries if allegations of conditions and/or date last insured are changed in the mainframe.
B. When Data Cannot Repropagate
Repropagation is not possible if a case is:
Transferred to the jurisdiction of another component;
Closed (no pending claims left on the case); or
Not in your jurisdiction.
NOTE: Use the “Update-After-Transfer” utility to update any information if the case is transferred. See Using the Update-After-Transfer Utility - DI 81010.095, for more information on using this function.
C. Fields that Repropagate

Claimant’s Name and date of birth;
Claimant’s Address and telephone number;
Number Holder’s SSN;
Alleged Onset Date;
Number Holder Date of Death; and
2. Additional Fields that Repropagate for Child Claims

Applicant Relationship to Child;

Applicant Address and phone number.

NOTE: If changes to these fields are necessary, edit them in EDCS.
