When a claimant files a new disability claim, the FO must determine whether the claimant
has previously filed for disability benefits or payments administered by the Social
Security Administration. The FO lists the prior filings with a medical determination
or decision, or substantial gainful activity (SGA) denial, on the SSA-3367 (Disability
Report - Field Office). The Disability Determination Services (DDS) does not need
information on technical denials (e.g., N13, N04, N18, 090) unless there was a medical
determination associated with the technical denial. For more information on documenting
prior filings on the SSA-3367 (Disability Report - Field Office), see DI 11005.045A.3.
NOTE: If a claimant files a new disability application and has a prior disability claim
for the same title and benefit type pending at any level of administrative review,
see DI 51501.001.
