In title II claims, a partially favorable allowance is when the EOD is after the AOD
because of medical, medical-vocational, or technical reasons.
EXAMPLE: The adjudicator might change the EOD to the date the claimant first met a favorable
vocational rule. The adjudicator may also establish a later EOD based on technical
factors, such as performance of substantial gainful activity (SGA) or a previously
adjudicated period that we cannot reopen (see DI 25501.250).
EXCEPTIONS: An EOD after the AOD is fully favorable if the following criteria apply.
For Medicare claims, if the EOD allows monthly benefits or entitlement on the earliest
possible date based on the filing date of the application, the period of retroactivity,
the number holder's date of death, or the first possible month of entitlement (see
The EOD is the date first insured for Disability Insurance Benefits (see DI 26530.005D.3.).
The EOD is established on or before the control date for Disabled Widow(er) Benefit
(DWB) or Disabled Minor Child (DMC) claims.
The EOD is fully favorable for Child Disability Benefit (CDB) claim purposes as described
in DI 25501.330A.6.
The EOD is fully favorable on any date within a given month, if we can determine the
claimant did not become disabled on the first day of that month (see DI 25501.300A.2.).
In cases where the difference between the AOD and the EOD has no effect on potential
benefits, the adjudicator does not need to send a PDE with an SSA-L1157-DI or SSA-L1157-SI.
