When a query referenced is in file or referenced by the adjudicating component, the review component:
may use the query that is already in file or identified by name (but only the same query that is in the file, or a query the adjudicating component obtained, referenced, or used) to conduct their case review; and
may cite deficiencies based on the information the query contains.
NOTE: If the query the adjudicating component used is not in file, identified, or clear from the case record, then the review component may use the Summary Earnings Query (SEQY), Detail Earnings Query (DEQY) or Disability Insured Status Calculator Online (DISCO) in conducting the case review and may cite deficiencies based on the information the queries contain.
