For MCS exclusion cases, enter the AOD on the EDCS MCS Exclusion Information page.

For claims established in the Modernized Claims System (MCS) and the Modernized Supplemental
Security Income Claims System (MSSICS), the AOD propagates into EDCS and cannot be
entered or changed by manual keying. To change an AOD in EDCS, make the AOD change
in MCS or MSSICS first, then the revised AOD propagates into EDCS (see DI 81010.045). If the claim has been transferred to DDS, use the Update after Transfer utility
(see DI 81010.095) to notify the DDS of any changes to the AOD.
The AOD is the date the claimant alleges he or she became unable to work because of
his or her medical condition, regardless of whether that date appears appropriate.
See DI 25501.210.
If the claimant never worked, enter the date he or she believes the condition(s) became
severe enough to keep him or her from working as the AOD.
If the AOD conflicts anywhere in the file (e.g., the AOD on the application is different
from the date on the SSA-3368-BK (Disability Report - Adult)):
resolve the conflict with the claimant,
enter the date selected by the claimant, and
explain why the AOD conflicts and how it was resolved in the Remarks section on the
