The DDS must determine that the beneficiary’s disability or blindness has medically
ceased, or that the beneficiary’s disability ended during a Title XVI Age 18 Redetermination
before continued payment of disability or blindness benefits to beneficiaries participating
in VR or similar program may occur.
If a beneficiary is participating in a VR or similar program, eView will display a
“Potential Section 301 Case” flag. A paper case will have an SSA-408 (Route Slip) attached to the folder annotated with “Potential 301 Case.” If DDS recognizes
a potential Section 301 case that the field office (FO) has not identified, make the
medical determination and follow procedures in DI 14510.010B.
If the case is a certified electronic folder (CEF), add a “Potential Section 301 Case”
flag (see DI 81020.085).
