Subject: Dismissals


This transmittal amends Hearings, Appeals and Litigation Law (HALLEX) manual section I-2-4-22 to update procedures for routing paper claim(s) files.

Explanation of Content and Changes

I-2-4-22 – In B.3., we explain that when an administrative law judge dismisses a request for hearing in a case with a paper claim(s) file, hearing office staff will route the paper claim(s) file to the SSANRC, as described in HALLEX I-2-1-10 C.
