There are times when a Continuing Disability Review (CDR) results in a medical cessation
determination. However, the CDR should never have been initiated (e.g., a medical
CDR is completed on a case protected from a medical review because a Ticket to Work
was assigned and in use, or in use SVR (State Vocational Rehabilitation) before the
CDR was initiated.) When this occurs, the CDR determination must be vacated and the
record restored to its prior status.
NOTE: See DI 13010.012H for FO processing instructions for cases where the medical review protection was
not applicable due to protection based on work activity.
