DI 11020.020 When Childhood Disability Development is not Required
The field office (FO) will not initiate disability development (i.e., do not complete
the SSA-3368-BK Disability Report – Adult or other disability forms) on a childhood
disability benefits (CDB) claim when it is obvious that the claim will be denied based
on technical factors of entitlement. For additional information regarding FO technical
denials of CDB claims, see DI 11020.050.
NOTE: When the new CDB entitlement is an adverse claim, it is excluded from District Office
Final Authorization (DOFA). For CDB claims excluded from FO authorization, see DI 11020.085.
