CCB — DENIAL — CLAIMANT ABLE TO ENGAGE IN SGA

We have determined that you are not entitled to childhood disability benefits. After carefully studying your record, it has been determined from the evidence that the work you are doing despite your handicap shows you are able to do some type of substantial gainful work. Therefore, you do not meet the disability requirement of the law.

It is important for you to know that we have not made any determination as to whether or not your medical condition is severe enough to meet the disability requirement. Since you are engaging in substantial gainful work, it has not been necessary to evaluate the severity of your medical condition.

341.

EVIDENCE INSUFFICIENT FOR DISABILITY DECISION — CLAIMANT UNCOOPERATIVE IN SUBMITTING ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE

Under the law, the applicant is responsible for furnishing evidence to support the claim. Although you have been requested to furnish additional evidence, you have not done so. Therefore, a determination has been made based on the evidence in file. This evidence does not show that you are disabled.

341(A)

CLAIM FIELD AFTER DEATH — INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE

Under the law, the applicant is responsible for furnishing evidence to support his/her disability claim. Although you have been requested to furnish additional evidence, you have not done so. Therefore, a determination has been made based on the evidence in file. This evidence does not show that (1) condition was disabling.

Fill in:

(1) NH's name

342.

EVIDENCE INSUFFICIENT FOR DISABILITY DECISION — CLAIMANT REFUSES OR DOES NOT REPORT FOR CONSULTATIVE EXAMINATION

The evidence we now have does not show that your condition is disabling. We based our determination on this evidence because you did not take the medical examination we asked you to have at our expense. The examination was needed to fully evaluate your condition.

FREEZE DOES NOT INCREASE RIB CURRENTLY PAYABLE

R

Since the amount of your benefit would not be increased by refiguring it under the disability provision, we are denying your application for a disability determination. Your benefit amount will continue unchanged.

351.

APPLICANT MENTIONS ANOTHER DISABILITY PROGRAM

Definitions of disability are not the same in all government and private disability programs. Government agencies must follow the particular laws which apply to their disability programs. Therefore, a finding by a private organization or another government agency that a person is disabled would not necessarily mean that the person is disabled as defined in the Social Security Act.

354.

REEXAMINATION SCHEDULED — BENEFICIARY HOSPITALIZED

The evidence in your claim shows that your condition may soon improve. Therefore, we plan to get in touch with you about (1) to see if your are still eligible to receive disability benefits.

But, if our review shows you are no longer disabled, your benefits will be stopped.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF PEOPLE RECEIVING DISABILITY BENEFITS

Please notify us promptly if you should leave the hospital. You should also report, without delay, any of the other events listed in the enclosed booklet.

STATUTORY BLINDNESS — DIB ALLOWANCE UNDER 1972 AMENDMENTS — FIRST MONTH OF ENTITLEMENT RESTRICTED TO 1/73

Under the law, in effect before 1972, disability benefits were payable only if a disabled individual was fully insured and had 20 Social Security credits in the 40-quarter (10-year) period ending in or after a quarter in which he was disabled. Although you meet the disability requirement and are fully insured, your Social Security record shows that you have only (1) credits in the 40-quarter period ending (2) , the last day of the calendar quarter in which you became disabled. Thus, you do not meet the earnings requirement in effect before the 1972 amendments.

The 1972 amendments changed the earnings requirement a statutorily blind person must meet to be entitled to disability benefits. It has been determined that you meet the new requirement. You are entitled to disability insurance benefits beginning with the month shown above. This is the earliest date benefits can be paid under the 1972 amendments to the Social Security Act.

374.

DIB — RATE INCREASE — CHANGE IN DISABILITY PERIOD

Your monthly disability insurance benefit has been increased to the amount shown above. The first payment will include the difference due for back benefits from the date of entitlement shown above.

We have determined that you are not entitled to childhood disability benefits. The evidence shows that you are unable to perform substantial gainful work due to your condition, but that you are not following the treatment which has been prescribed for you. Therefore, childhood disability benefits may not be paid to you.

Childhood disability insurance benefits may be paid to a person age 18 or older if the person is unable to perform any substantial gainful work due to a medically determinable impairment which began before age 22.

Despite prescribed treatment, the condition must have lasted or be expected to last, for a continuous period of at least 12 months. However, if a person refuses to follow prescribed treatment that could restore the individual's ability to work, the person may not become entitled to childhood disability benefits.

If you should decide to follow the prescribed treatment, or if you have more information showing why you should not, please get in touch with any Social Security office.

DWB CESSATION (NO TRIAL WORK PERIOD)

A widow, widower or surviving divorced spouse may be considered disabled for Social Security purposes only if she or he has a medical condition that is so severe as to ordinarily prevent an individual from working.

CDB-EXPLANATION OF DISABILITY REQUIREMENT

To be considered disabled for Social Security purposes, a claimant for childhood disability benefits must be unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to a medical condition which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months. This impairment must be so severe as to prevent him/her from engaging in substantial gainful work, considering his/her education, and previous training.

Before the 1972 amendments to the Social Security Act, a claimant for childhood disability benefits had to have a disability which began before he/ she was age 18. The 1972 amendments changed this requirement so that a person may qualify if his/her disability began before age 22. The earliest date a person can be entitled under the 1972 law is January 1973.

522.1.

CDB-DISABILITY MUST START BEFORE AGE 22

A child's disability, as defined by law, must start before age 22. Any medical condition that may have become disabling after attainment of age 22 cannot serve as the basis for qualifying under the disability provisions of the law.

522.2.

CDB-EXPLANATION OF CLAIMANT'S RIGHTS AFTER CESSATION

A person whose entitlement to childhood disability benefits has ended may again become eligible for them if his/her physical or mental condition again becomes disabling within 7 years after his/he prior entitlement to childhood disability benefits was terminated. If you are again prevented by your condition from doing any kind of substantial gainful work, contact any Social Security office about filing another disability application.

522.3.

CDB-7-YEAR PERIOD FOR REENTITLEMENT ENDED BEFORE EOD

To qualify for childhood disability benefits, your condition must have been severe enough to meet the disability requirement of the law within 7 years after your prior entitlement to childhood disability benefits ended.

DIB CESSATION — WORK ACTIVITY — TRIAL WORK PERIOD

To be considered disabled for Social Security purposes, a person's impairment must be so severe as to prevent him/her from engaging not only in his/her usual occupation but also in any other kind of substantial gainful work, considering his/her age, education and work experience. Disability benefits end when a person is no longer disabled within the meaning of the law. If a person works while still under a disability, his/her benefit payments are continued during 9 months of work. (These months need not be consecutive, and any work done in a month is counted as a month of work.) Then if it is determined after the 9 months that he/she has demonstrated his/ her ability to do substantial gainful work and therefore is no longer disabled, his/her benefits are paid for 3 more months.

524(A).

 

FREEZE CESSATION — WORK ACTIVITY

To be considered disabled for Social Security purposes, a person's impairment must be so severe as to prevent him/her from engaging not only in his/her usual occupation but also in any other kind of substantial gainful work, considering his/her age, education and work experience. A disability freeze ends when a person is no longer disabled within the meaning of the law. If a person with a disability freeze returns to work and it is determined that the work is substantial gainful activity, the freeze will be terminated. The law continues the freeze, however, for the month the disability ends and the following two months.

524(B).

 

DIB CESSATION — WORK ACTIVITY — NO WAITING PERIOD SERVED

To be considered disabled for Social Security purposes, a person's impairment must be so severe as to prevent him/her from engaging not only in his/her usual occupation but also in any other kind of substantial gainful work, considering his/her age, education and work experience. The law provides that a person who has a severe impairment is allowed a trial work period in which he/she may work in 9 months before a decision is made as to whether his/her benefits should be continued. However, the trial work period does not apply when a person who had a prior period of disability again becomes entitled to disability benefits without serving a waiting period. His /Her disability ends when he/she returns to substantial gainful work. However, benefits will be paid for the month disability ends and two additional months.

525(B).

 

 

CDB CESSATION — WORK ACTIVITY TWP PREVIOUSLY USED

To be considered disabled for Social Security purposes, a childhood disability beneficiary's impairment must be so severe as to prevent him/her from engaging in any substantial gainful activity, considering his/her previous training and education. Disability benefits end when a person is no longer disabled within the meaning of the law. If a childhood disability beneficiary works, his/her benefit payments are continued during 9 months of work. (These months need not be consecutive, and any work done in a month is counted as a month of work.) If at the end of 9 months of work he/she still is not able to engage in substantial gainful activity, his/her benefits will be continued. Should he/she later perform work which is substantial gainful activity, he/she will no longer be considered disabled and his/her disability benefits will be paid for the month disability ends and two additional months.

525(C).

Therefore, the determination to end your disability period with the month of (3) is proper under the law. The disability period already established for you beginning (4) and ending (5) may still be used to your advantage in deciding whether benefits can be paid on your Social Security record in the future, and in figuring the amount of such benefits.

DIB OR FREEZE — DISABILITY MUST EXIST WHEN EARNINGS REQUIREMENT IS MET

The inability to engage in any type of substantial gainful activity because of a medical condition must exist at a time when the earnings requirement is met.

533(A).

DIB OR FREEZE — DISABILITY AFTER EARNINGS REQUIREMENT LAST MET CANNOT SERVE TO QUALIFY

A medical condition which may have become disabling after the earnings requirement is last met cannot serve as a basis for qualifying under the disability provisions of the law.

533(B).

DIB OR FREEZE — CONDITION NOT SEVERE WHEN EARNINGS REQUIREMENT MET

The evidence does not show that your condition when you met the earnings requirement, affected your ability so much as to keep you from doing some type of gainful work at that time. A medical condition which may have become disabling after the earnings requirement is last met cannot serve as a basis for qualifying under the disability provisions.

534.

DIB OR FREEZE — DISABILITY MUST START AT LEAST 5 MONTHS BEFORE FULL RETIREMENT AGE

The continuous inability to engage in any type of substantial gainful activity must start at least 5 months before the month of reaching FULL RETIREMENT AGE.

DIB OR FREEZE

Any medical condition that may have become disabling less than 5 months before the month of reaching full retirement age cannot serve as the basis for qualifying under the disability provisions of the law.

535.

DIB OR FREEZE — DISABILITY MUST START AT LEAST 5 MONTHS BEFORE THE MONTH OF ATTAINING FULL RETIREMENT AGE AND WHEN EARNINGS REQUIREMENT IS MET

Although you may now be unable to do any work because of your medical condition, that alone does not make you eligible. Under the law, the continuous inability to engage in any type of substantial gainful activity must start at least 5 months before the month of reaching full retirement age and at a time when the earnings requirement is met.

536.

DEFINITION OF SGA

Substantial gainful work is any work generally performed for remuneration or profit, involving the performance of significant physical or mental duties. Work may be considered substantial even if performed part-time. In evaluating a person's work activity, consideration is given to such factors as the nature of the job duties and the skill and experience required to do the job, in addition to his/her earnings. The fact that his/her current work may be different, less complex and less gainful than that which he/she did before his/her disability began does not necessarily mean that he/she will still be considered eligible for benefits under the terms of the law. Under the Social Security regulations when a person's earnings average more than (1) , he/she is generally considered to be performing substantial gainful work.

DIB OR FREEZE — CLAIMANT AGED 62-65 — POSSIBLE ENTITLEMENT TO REDUCED RIB

Although you do not now qualify for disability insurance benefits or the disability “freeze”, our records show you have enough credit for work under Social Security to qualify for retirement benefits. The Social Security Act provides that retired workers may qualify for retirement benefits starting at age 62. If they choose to receive them before they become 65, however, the amount of the benefit is reduced. If you would like further information about this, we suggest you get in touch with any Social Security office. The staff there will be glad to discuss your eligibility with you and help you apply for benefits if you wish to do so.

544.

DIB OR FREEZE — NOT DISABLED — CLAIMANT WILL ATTAIN RETIREMENT AGE BEFORE EARNINGS TEST EXPIRES

As you were previously informed, this determination concerns only your disability application. It is not a decision as to whether benefits will be payable to you at retirement age. If your condition should get worse, and prevent you from doing substantial gainful work, you should get in touch with any Social Security office.

544(A).

DIB OR FREEZE — DETERMINATION CONCERNS ONLY DISABILITY APPLICATION

As you were previously informed, this determination concerns only your disability application. It is not a decision as to whether benefits will be payable to you at retirement age.

First, he/she needs credit for 20 calendar quarters (5 years) of work during a 40-quarter period (10-years) ending in or after a quarter in which he /she is disabled. And second, he/she needs credit for one calendar quarter of work for each year after 1950 (or after reaching age 21, if that is later) up to the year his/her disability began. A minimum of 6 credits is always needed. In the second instance, the credits may have been earned at any time.

And second, he/ she needs credits for one calendar quarter of work for each year after 1950 (or after reaching age 21, if that is later) up to the year his/her disability began.

547.

DESCRIPTION OF EARNINGS REQUIREMENT — STATUTORY BLINDNESS — AOD 1973 OR LATER

To meet the earnings requirement of the law a person whose disability is due to statutory blindness must have one Social Security credit for each year elapsing after 1950 (or after age 21, if that is later) up to the year he/ she became disabled. A minimum of 6 credits is needed. The credits may have been earned at any time during the person's employment under Social Security coverage.

548.

DESCRIPTION OF OLD AND NEW EARNINGS REQUIREMENT — STATUTORY BLINDNESS

Before the 1972 amendments to the Social Security Act, a disabled person needed to meet two provisions of the earnings requirement. First, he/she needed 20 Social Security credits in the 40 quarter (10 years) period ending in or after the quarter in which he/she became disabled.

DIB ALLOWANCE UNDER 1972 AMENDMENTS — STATUTORY BLINDNESS

Before the 1972 amendments to the Social Security Act, a disabled person needed to meet two provisions of the earnings requirement. First, he/she needed one Social Security credit for each year elapsing after 1950 (or after attainment of age 21, if that is later) up to the year he/she became disabled. Second, he/she needed 20 Social Security credits in the 40 quarter (10 year) period ending in or after the quarter in which he/she became disabled. Although you meet the first provision, your Social Security record shows that you have only (1) credits in the 40 quarter period ending (2) , the last day of the calendar quarter in which you became disabled. Therefore, you do not meet the earnings requirement in effect before the 1972 amendments.

Under the 1972 amendments, only the first provision of the law must be met by a person disabled because of statutory blindness. Since you meet this requirement, you are entitled to disability insurance benefits beginning
(3) . This is the earliest date benefits can be paid under the 1972 amendments to the Social Security Act.

FAVORABLE DISABILITY DETERMINATION BY VETERANS ADMINISTRATION — GENERAL

The finding of the Veterans Administration in your case was carefully considered by us along with the rest of the evidence in your file. The Veterans Administration has several disability programs under different laws, and the eligibility requirements differ in each instance. Although similar, the eligiblity requirements under the disability programs administered by the Veterans Administration and by the Social Security Administration are not the same. Thus, a person who meets the requirements under a Veterans Administration program does not necessarily qualify under the disability provisions of the Social Security Act. Under our program we must determine whether the requirements contained in the Social Security Act are met.

551.

P&T PENSION AWARD BY VETERANS ADMINISTRATION

The fact that you were found permanently and totally disabled under the Veterans Administration program was carefully considered by us along with the rest of the evidence in your case. A determination by the Veterans Administration that a person is permanently and totally disabled does not necessarily mean that he will qualify under the disability provisions of the Social Security Act. Although there are many similarities, the eligibility requirements under the disability programs administered by the Veterans Administration and by the Social Security Administration are not the same. Under our program we must determine whether the requirements contained in the Social Security Act are met.

552.

DISABILITY BENEFITS BY OTHER THAN VETERANS ADMINISTRATION

The fact that you were found eligible by the (Workmen's Compensation) (Insurance Company) to receive payment because of disability does not necessarily mean that you will be considered disabled under the Social Security Act, since each disability program has its own eligibility requirements. However, this matter has been carefully considered by us along with the rest of the evidence in your case.

553.

PARTIAL ALLOWANCE IN FREEZE CASES (Will ordinarily be typed in form allowance notice)

CONCLUSION OF DISABILITY BY ATTENDING PHYSICIAN

In making the decision in this case very careful consideration was given to the conclusion of your attending physician. We value the evidence received from an applicant's attending physician very highly and are most reluctant to reach a decision which is not consistent with his/her judgment. However, in our program an independent determination must be made as to whether the person meets the requirements of the law and the regulations on the basis of the clinical findings of all examining physicians, results of laboratory studies, treatment given and response, as well as the individuals training and experience. Where judgments differ as to the effects of impairments, the decision must be based on the objective evidence presented.

555.

DIB EXPLANATION OF CLAIMANT'S RIGHTS AFTER CESSATION

A person whose disability freeze and disability benefit payments have ended may become eligible for them again if his/her physical or mental condition again prevents him/her from doing substantial gainful work. If you are again prevented by your condition from doing any kind of substantial gainful work, contact any Social Security office about filing another disability application. The disability freeze period already established for you may still be used to your advantage in deciding whether future benefits can be paid on your Social Security record and in figuring the amount of such benefits.

EXPLANATION OF MEDICARE PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIONS UNDER PUBLIC LAW (P.L.) 97-248, SECTION 278

Section 278 of P.L. 97-248 was enacted in recognition of the fact that a significant number of Federal employees and retirees qualify for Medicare coverage either on the basis of their own employment outside the Federal government or on that of their spouse. However, such employees generally do so on the basis of fewer quarters of coverage than other beneficiaries. Consequently, Congress acted on the belief that Federal employees (and the Federal government, as their employer) should bear a more equitable share of the cost of financing the health benefits to which many of them eventually become entitled.

The fact that some Federal workers already qualify for Medical does not disadvantage them with respect to non-Federal workers. Such workers do not stop paying FICA taxes once they become eligible for Social Security benefits and/or Medicare, but continue to pay such taxes until they stop working.

The 1.3 percent tax (which is part of the FICA tax) supports the Medicare hospital insurance trust fund which provides free hospital insurance coverage to beneficiaries such as yourself. The premium you pay is for medical insurance which does not have a tax-supported base. Therefore, you are not paying double for you Medicare coverage.
