Retention Date: November 29, 2023
The purpose of this EM is to inform Field Office (FO) technicians of a change in business process for obtaining/securing paper Title II Comparison Point Decisions (CPD) folders for Medical Continuing Disability Reviews (CDRs).
DI 13015.030 advises that the FO is responsible for obtaining the Title XVI medical folder and the Processing Center (PC) is responsible for obtaining the Title II folders. The PCs have used an automated process that has grown outdated with the agency’s enhancements to electronic processing and resulted in unnecessary folder shipment.

C. FO Instructions
Effective with this EM, the PCs will no longer automate the shipment of CPD folders automated through the Ship-It application, and the FO is now responsible for requesting the CPD folder when necessary. FO technicians should review prior medical folders to determine whether the paper folder is necessary for examiners.
If a prior paper folder is needed, please utilize the instructions for requesting the folder from SSANRC found in DI 13015.040 C. 3.
