It is important to remember that you can reevaluate capability regardless of past
determinations. Therefore, you must always be alert to changes in circumstances that
might indicate the need for a new capability determination. If you become aware of
indicators or evidence that there is a change in a beneficiary's capability or when
you receive a request for a new determination indicating that the prior capability
determination may no longer apply, you must develop capability and make a capability
determination. For information on developing capability, see GN 00502.001 through GN 00502.075.
If you become aware of potential changes in capability during contact with the beneficiary,
representative payee (payee), or third party or during your normal course of business,
see GN 00502.055B. When a subsequent payee application is filed and you become aware that a prior capability
determination was inadequately developed or documented, conduct a new capability determination.
