10. Stumbling Block

SSDI recipients can now apply for PASS first and SSA will ask for the SSI application after the PASS cadre tells the field office to do so. See POMS SI 00870.020(D) Step 5.

SSA offices may not adopt the SSDI decision for SSI purposes; however, DDS is allowed to review the claim and adopt the SSDI disability determination for SSI purposes where appropriate.

If the SSI claim is denied, a new CDR may begin on the SSDI disability claim. SSDI will not be directly impacted by the SSI denial but it might be.
