Transmittal No. I-2-77

Chapter: I-2-0: Initial Processing of a Request for Hearing

Subject: Good Cause for Late Filing


This transmittal updates the instructions contained in HALLEX I-2-0-60 to be consistent with language in 20 CFR 404.911 and 20 CFR 416.1411.

Explanation of Content and Changes

I-2-0-60 A. did not contain the language found in 20 CFR 404.911(a)(4) and 20 CFR 416.1411(a)(4). Instead of placing the regulation language in the HALLEX, the citation to the regulation will take the place of Sections A. and B. of the HALLEX.

I-2-0-60 C. has been modified to add language to clarify and update the procedures the hearing office follows to develop good cause.
