HALLEX
Volume I

Transmittal No. I-2-69

Chapter: I-2-8-18

Subject: Administrative Law Judge Decisions in Court Remand

Background

This transmittal revises I-2-8-18 A. to restore language that was previously in this HALLEX section but was inadvertently changed in the September 2005 rewrite of this section.

Explanation of Content and Changes

I-2-8-18 A. is revised to state that in a court remand case in which the Appeals Council subsequently vacates the ALJ decision and remands the case to an ALJ for further proceedings and a new decision, the ALJ must consider all pertinent issues de novo.
