If the claimant needs help securing evidence and another FO has more access to obtain
it, request assistance from the servicing FO (FO you are requesting service from)
to assist in obtaining the necessary evidence or information.
Example: The number holder (NH) needs five to six weeks to obtain evidence, but the servicing
FO (field office that we are asking for assistance) can obtain the same evidence in
one week. The NH’s local FO should request assistance from the servicing FO that has
the capability to obtain the evidence quicker.
