Request evidence of age from claimants who have not previously established their age
for SSA purposes unless a tolerance applies. For instructions about proof of age tolerances,
see “Evidence of Age - Tolerances” in GN 00302.030.
Accept any and all evidence of age which the applicant submits regardless of when
the evidence was recorded or established. Do not give the claimant the impression
that any evidence he/she wishes to submit will be rejected as unacceptable, even though
it may be necessary to seek additional evidence of greater probative value.
Consider all evidence submitted in making a DB determination.
