After transferring jurisdiction of an Electronic Disability Collect System (EDCS)
case, use the UAT utility to:
Update certain Modernized Claims System (MCS) and/or Modernized Supplemental Security
Income Claims System (MSSICS) changes in EDCS;
Add information to the Certified Electronic Folder (CEF) by creating an SSA – 5002
(Report of Contact) in EDCS;
Add a claim. To add a claim, at least one claim must already have been transferred
to the jurisdiction of the Disability Determination Services (DDS) or the Office of
Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR); or
Add an escalated claim to a case. To add an escalated claim, at least one claim must
already be at the reconsideration or hearing level.
The “Summary of Updates” screen is broken down into tabs, “Mainframe Updates, Other
Updates and Transfer Claims”. Review all tabs on the “Summary of Updates” screen prior
to sending the UAT.
NOTE: Do not initiate the UAT when adding forms (such as eForms) or documents (such as faxing
medical records) to the CEF. An automatic alert posts to the DDS and ODAR case processing
systems when adding a document to a CEF.
The UAT process will be blocked in the following situations:
The claim effective filing date is more than 1 month later than the original claim
effective filing date; or
A new claim is being added and the new claim is more than 18 months later than the
EDCS case establishment date.
In these instances, the following edit message will be displayed:
Updates after Transfer can no longer be performed on this case. You will need to close
any pending claim(s) using FO Determination and create a new case.
NOTE: UATs are not displayed and do not update the disability reports viewable in eView.
Data updated from MCS and/or MSSICS is shown under the Case Data Tab in eView (see
Case Data Tab - DI 81005.045. All UATs produce an alert and a “Record of Change” in eView (see Case Data Tab -
