Follow the guidelines below to determine whether adjudication of a disability claim
must be delayed until POA is received, or whether the claim can be processed and POA
obtained after adjudication.
The FO must establish a diary when POA is being developed after adjudication. Complete
the Decision Input (DECI) screen in Modernized Claims System (MCS) to establish the
diary, see Decision Input (DECI) - MSOM MCS 009.013 and Diary Codes - GN 01040.010 for the list of diary codes. The diary ensures that follow-ups to secure the proof
are made until the POA is received. Once POA is received, if the only update needed
is the proof code, the FO follows Miscellaneous Online Edited Transaction (MONET)
instructions in Benefit Data 1 (BEN1) - MSOM T2PE 007.026.
Forward all evidence of age to the office with jurisdiction of the disability file
when a DOB determination is made after a disability file has been sent to the Processing
Center (PC). Evidence of age can be input into Shared Processes, see Electronic Evidence
Documentation and Retention - GN 00301.286 and Shared Processes Menu (SPMN) -MSOM EVID 001.002. In material POA cases, when
the POA is submitted, the FO prepares an amended award per Electronic Form 101 Process
(MS T2PE 009.001). All amended awards should be an EF 101. Control the case per Listings
and Diaries – Adjudication - GN 01010.260A.2. Be alert to any determination, which may establish that the number holder (NH) or
auxiliary is within the Medicare Supplemental Medical Insurance (SMI) enrollment period.
