The DDS will not screen out a CDR based on the age of the disabled individual, except
Title II and concurrent (Title II and Title XVI) cases as described in DI 28003.005C.1. in this section. The Social Security Administration will defer certain beneficiary
groups based on age, under the agency's CDR plan.
Exception: If we select a case for a CDR, do not stop the review because of the disabled individual's
age, except when the case involves the following:
A disabled worker who is within three months of attaining full retirement age (FRA),
see RS 00615.003A; or
A disabled surviving spouse who is within three months of potential conversion to
a survivor benefit based solely on age and relationship, see RS 00615.003B.
