Use the CDR Development Worksheet (CDRW) to control actions pending in the Disability
Control File (DCF), such as EXR requests, work CDR issues for eWork exclusion cases,
Ticket to Work issues, or Section 301 issues. The CDRW posts automated issues, such
as VY (verify) and ERNGS (earnings) issues based on inputs into other systems and
DCF screens. You can also manually create issues. All issues are assigned to a location
(the LOC field) which is derived from the location of the user. All issues can be
viewed, but you can only update issues which are pending in your location. Issues
which are not your jurisdiction will appear in blue.
The CDRW will store up to 100 issues. When issues are generated from another DCF screen
and 100 issues are already present, the DCF screen cannot be completed until sufficient
existing issues are deleted to make room for the new issues. When issues are generated
in the batch process and 100 issues are already present, closed issues (oldest first)
followed by the oldest open issues will drop off to make room for the current issues.
Closed Earnings and Ticket issues drop off automatically 30 days after closure. Other
closed issues drop off 180 days after a medical CDR is completed. If an appeal is
indicated by a Y in the APPEAL field of the CDR Information screen (CDRI), closed
issues will remain for 360 days.
NOTE: When you access the CDRW, incomplete lines will be displayed at the end of the list
of issues with the LOC, TYPE and REQUEST fields pre-filled. This feature is intended
as a time saver for users creating new issues. New issues are not established unless an entry is made to the ISSUE field.
