The Administrative Law Judge issued a decision on January 1, 2002. The claimant has asked the Appeals Council to review this decision.

The Appeals Council grants the request for review under the substantial evidence provisions of the Social Security Administration regulations 20 CFR 404.970. The Appeals Council vacates the hearing decision and remands this case to an Administrative Law Judge for further proceedings, including a new decision.

The Appeals Council was unable to take action on the claimant's request for review at the time it was filed because the record upon which the Administrative Law Judge based the decision could not be located. When extensive efforts to locate the record were unsuccessful, it was decided to reconstruct it.

The Appeals Council has been unable to locate or redevelop the evidence. Because of this, the Appeals Council is unable to determine whether the decision is supported by substantial evidence. Accordingly, the Appeals Council finds that the claimant should have the opportunity for a new hearing and decision on the issues raised by his application.

The Administrative Law Judge will provide the claimant the opportunity for a new hearing and will also provide the claimant the opportunity to submit additional evidence, including any available medical evidence.

The Administrative Law Judge may take any further action needed to complete the administrative record.

The Appeals Council regrets the delay involved.
