Both Cases Allowed
The SSI file must contain the SSI application, SSI notices, ALJ, and AC decisions, and other documents bearing on the SSI eligibility and payment of benefits (see list for examples — not an all inclusive list).
The Title II file must contain all records pertaining to the Title II claim. In a disability case, the medical evidence should be retained in the Title II file.
One Claim Allowed and One Claim Denied
Follow the procedure outlined in A. above. Also, in disability cases, the analyst must arrange to have the medical exhibits photocopied. Place the original copies of the medical exhibits in the folder of the denied claim so they will be available in the event of further appeal. Place the photocopies of the medical exhibits in the allowed file.
