Advise a claimant who has decided not to submit the necessary evidence to establish
entitlement (e.g., failure to pursue, failure to establish foreign residency, etc.)
not to withdraw his/her SVB claim. Instead, the claim should be disallowed for failure
to establish a factor of entitlement.
If the claimant insists on withdrawing the SVB claim, even though a disallowance would
serve the same purpose, obtain a signed statement in accordance with VB 00201.070A.2.d.
NOTE: SVB disallowances are currently precluded from systems processing and must be documented
by entries in the individual case REMARKS on the San Francisco SVB Intranet site.
