Amendments to the Quick Disability Determination Process
Document Number: E7-17533
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-06
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are amending our regulations to extend the quick disability determination process (QDD), which is operating now in the Boston region, to all of the State disability determination services (DDSs). We also are removing from the QDD process the existing requirements that each State DDS maintain a separate QDD unit and that each case referred under QDD be adjudicated within 20 days. These actions stem from our continuing effort to improve our disability adjudication process.
