Complete development instructions for childhood disability benefit (CDB) cases are located in DI 11020.000.
Consider re-entitlement via expedited reinstatement (DI 13050.000) if the child’s previous CDB entitlement ended due to his or her own work activity.
CAUTION: Disability development does not have to be undertaken if the dependency or relationship requirements are not met or the number holder (NH) was not insured. Follow DI 11020.050, Field Office (FO) Authorization of Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB) Involving Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), and Technical Denials, when the CDB claim does not require a disability determination.
REMINDER: Follow GN 00204.022 on when to explore entitlement on another earnings record and DI 13010.500 on when to use the Disability Control File (DCF).
