An unfavorable decision on a Title XVI age-18 redetermination could be reason to initiate
a continuing disability review (CDR) on the Title II claim. The evidence used could
also establish a reason to consider reopening the Title II disability determination.
For additional information on when to raise a CDR issue, see DI 27515.050.
However, because the initial standard employed in an age-18 redetermination differs from
the MIRS employed in determining continuing disability, it is possible that entitlement
could continue the Title II claim. For Title II cases not initiated as a CDR, the
DDS must send notification prior to initiating the Title II CDR.
NOTE: The DDS must send a separate notice to the disabled individual and the individual's
For concurrent cases initiated as a CDR, process the age-18 redetermination and the
Title II CDR actions at the same time. However, if a new notice is required, send
notification prior to processing the CDR. This means that there could be a later cessation
date on the Title II claim. Do not attempt to reconcile the dates and do not delay
action on the Title XVI age-18 redetermination. For additional information on conflicting
determinations or decisions, see DI 27520.030.
Always use the form SSA-832 (Cessation or Continuance of Disability or Blindness Determination
and Transmittal - Title XVI) to document the CDR medical determination for the concurrent
Title II claim if the Title XVI age-18 redetermination results in an unfavorable determination.
