Res Judicata, Reopening and Revival: The 3 Rs for Keeping Social Security Cases Alive (so they can be paid)

Date: November 6, 2009

This training explores the ways in which the Social Security Administrations (SSAs) administrative finality and res judicata rules can be avoided. The session focuses on the significance of overcoming finality hurdles so that disability before the expiration of a claimants date last insured (DLI) can be established. Reopening strategies and the standards for good cause and new and material evidence, as well as rules for extensions of time for filing appeals are presented. The session also covers ways to guard against reopenings by SSA.
