VB 01503.205 Requests For Additional Time To Comply
SSA's initial and follow-up requests for evidence/information encourage the individual to contact SSA if he or she needs more time to comply with the request.
Handle requests for additional time as follows:
Grant the following extensions based on the information above:
the number of days agreed upon;
another 30-day period if the individual is uncertain as to how much longer he or she will need; or
a longer extension when needed for a good reason and the individual appears to be acting in good faith.
Update the MDW with any extensions agreed upon.
