DI 81010.055 Saving Data and Exiting Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS) Cases

Navigating from one EDCS screen to another always saves what is on the current screen. Selecting “cancel” on a screen causes you to lose any changes made to that screen. To ensure that no data is lost, EDCS must be exited properly.

NOTE: If EDCS has “timed out” while in the process of completing a page, the data entered will be lost. See Time Out Due to Lack of Activity - DI 81010.015 for more information.

The two ways to properly exit EDCS are (from the toolbar at the top of the EDCS screen) to:

  • Close the case, which saves all data and returns you to the SSN search screen. Choose this option if you want to continue working in EDCS.

  • Exit the case, which saves all data and exits EDCS. Choose this option if you no longer want to continue working in EDCS.
