NL 00601.060 Withdrawal Notices

A. Policy

We must notify the individual requesting withdrawal of a claim whenever we take final action on the request.

1. Request approved

If the request is approved, do not include a reconsideration paragraph, unless it also includes notification about other decisions, such as an earnings determination.

2. Request disapproved

If the request is disapproved, include a reconsideration paragraph and an explanation of the reason for disapproval, except where disapproved after disallowance of claim. Then use exhibit letter, E3705. (See GN 00206.145)

B. Process

Withdrawal notices are produced as follows:


CAPS will generate preadjudicative withdrawal approval notices.

  1. a. 

    Unconditional withdrawal - Disallowance codes 200, 201, 203, 204 or 206 will automatically generate a notice with paragraph MG90.

  2. b. 

    Conditional withdrawal - Request paragraph RG93 (DS code 202, 205 or 207).

  3. c. 

    Withdrawal cancellation (how to cancel withdrawal request) - MG91.

    This paragraph will follow either MG90 or RG93.

2. Manual letters

For postadjudicative withdrawal related notices, see exhibits in NL 00703.700 through NL 00703.706. (GN 00206.014 and GN 00206.105)

3. SSA-L250

For withdrawal approval notices which cannot be processed through CAPS, use SSA-L250 with appropriate numbered or dictated paragraphs (NL 00708.100). These notices can also be prepared on the Four Phase System or M-TEXT.
