In many cases, the SSI claim may be adjudicated before the full proof-of-age development
called for in the above procedure is completed.
Adjudicate the SSI claim based on the evidence submitted by the applicant pending
completion of full proof-of-age development if:
The applicant presents any evidence of age (or the FO obtains a NUMIDENT query) established
at least 3 years before the date the application is filed that reasonably supports
his/her allegation, and
Further development under the normal title II proof-of-age rules is required.
Control for completion of the full DB development.
IMPORTANT: This rule is applicable even when there is a material discrepancy in file if, by
all evidence, the applicant is at least age 65.
If any of the evidence shows that the applicant is not at least age 65, develop under the normal title II proof-of-age rules before adjudicating.
