I-3-10-11.Administrative Sanction Cases

Last Update: 5/13/14 (Transmittal I-3-65)

Under the circumstances noted in 20 CFR 404.459 and 416.1340, an administrative law judge may impose an administrative sanction of nonpayment of benefits that would otherwise be payable to a person under title II or of ineligibility for cash benefits under title XVI. See Hearings, Appeals and Litigation Law manual I-2-10-16.

In such cases, the Appeals Council will use its usual procedures to decide the issue before it and determine whether there is a basis for granting review under 20 CFR 404.970 and 416.1470.
