Once DDS receives the EDCS Routing Form and SSA-827s from the FO:
the case is receipted into the DDS system; and
EDCS data is displayed within the DDS case processing screens.
FO failure to transfer jurisdiction of the EDCS case to DDS prevents:
EDCS data from propagating into the DDS case processing screens during DDS’s receipt
DDS from processing the case electronically until the FO transfers the case to DDS.
NOTE: The FO maintains jurisdiction of the case until case transfer to DDS. The FO can
change information in EDCS until the case is transferred. After transfer, the FO can
still view the EDCS disability report information via eView.
If DDS determines the FO failed to transfer the case, DDS must contact the FO and
ask them to transfer the case.
