When a partially favorable Title II or Title XVI reconsideration disability determination
is prepared, the law requires that the determination notice contain a personalized
explanation of the case written in plain language, including a discussion of the evidence,
and reason(s) for the determination.
Personalized notices should be:
understandable to all claimants.
When a personalized explanation is prepared that explains why the claimant is no longer
entitled to disability benefits (e.g., disability cessations, adverse reopenings),
it is not necessary to repeat the information in the determination notice.
