Transfer claims (except Railroad annuitant cases) that require additional development
for onset of disability or continuance of disability to the Disability Determination
Services (DDS). Request the DDS prepare an initial determination on the subsequent
claim, and if there is a raised continuing disability review (CDR) issue, a CDR determination
on the current entitlement.
For subsequent claims with work activity after the most recent determination or decision,
transfer the claim (including any prior paper folders) to the servicing FO with instructions
to document work activity before transferring the claims meeting technical requirements
to the DDS.
The DDS also has jurisdiction of DIB, DWB, or CDB claims for an individual who is
a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability/blindness recipient. For more information
on jurisdiction of subsequent claims, see DI 20101.001.
When the claim involves an issue pending under appeal, see DI 12045.010 and DI 20101.025.
