AC Grant Review Actions as a Percentage of All AC Dispositions
Longitudinal report detailing the numbers and percentages of Appeals Council (AC) grant review actions on Requests for Review (RR) of hearing level decisions or dismissals filed with the AC during each of Fiscal Years 2010 – 2016 as compared to the total number of RR dispositions issued during those same years. In response to a RR of a hearing level action, the AC may either deny or dismiss the RR, or grant review of the hearing level decision or dismissal. In this report, grant review actions include when the AC either returns the hearing level decision or dismissal with a remand order for further action, or when the AC issues a new decision.
For FY 2016, this report has a listing for the normal 52 week fiscal year (9/26/2015 – 9/23/2016) and a second listing to include the extra 53rd week (9/26/2015 – 9/30/2016). Most fiscal years have just 52 weeks, however, FY 2016 had 53 weeks, which is an anomaly that occurs every five or six years.
