Document Processing System (DPS) Identifier: E3471

A. Exhibit notice

You will not be able to use the expedited appeals process (EAP) which you requested. The rest of this notice will explain why you will not be able to use the EAP and what will happen to *F1 case next.

Why We Cannot Approve *F1 Request

(Provide a dictated paragraph giving the reason for disallowing the EAP request.)

What Happens Next

We will process your request for review using our regular rules because you cannot use the EAP. We will send *F1 case to the servicing hearing office for a review which is called a hearing.

We are sending *F2 case to:

*F3

How A Hearing Works

A person who has not seen *F1 case before will look at it. That person will be an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The ALJ will consider the issue(s) you raise, the evidence in the file, and any additional evidence you provide.

You will receive an acknowledgement of your hearing request which will give you more information about the hearing process.

B. When to send an EAP denial notice

The field office (FO) will send an EAP denial notice if the claimant does not meet all requirements in GN 03107.100C.1 for Title II or SI 04060.010C.1 for Title XVI. Be sure to provide a dictated paragraph giving the reason for disallowing the EAP request.

NOTE: Include the address of the servicing hearing office where the claims folder was sent in the notice. Do not add an appeal paragraph as denying the use of EAP is not an initial determination.

For more information on FO EAP responsibilities, see GN 03107.150.
