Prior to making the final disability determination, the DDS may send any electronic
case, that they have jurisdiction of, to another DDS (e.g., the claimant moves to
a different state).
When sending cases to another disability case processing component for workload assistance
and the final determination will be made by the receiving office, use the Transfer
(TR) decision code rather than a No Determination (ND) decision code to ensure proper
workload credit. Route the claim using TR regardless of whether or not substantive
work has been done on the case. The instructions in DI 81020.127 Processing "No Determination" (ND) Claims, for “send to another office” do not apply
when routing claims for workload assistance.
