Obtain additional earnings information from the Detailed Earnings Query (DEQY) if
an earlier onset date is possible and additional earnings information is necessary
to determine whether the claimant meets the insured status at that point.
When an earlier onset is possible, at a point when the claimant meets the earnings
requirements, or within 1 year of the onset of a non-traumatic impairment, route the
case to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) for a medical determination. If
the case is electronic, the DE/DPS must route the EF to the FO who will then route
it to the DDS, since there is no electronic communication between the PCs and DDS.
In situations where an earlier onset is not possible, or an earlier date is possible,
but not at a point when the disability insured status requirements is met, in traumatic
impairment cases, or within 1 year of the date the insured status requirement was
last met, the claim must be denied.
