And It Only Took Almost Three Years For Social Security To Clarify This

     From a transmittal sheet amending Social Security's POMS manual:
...to clarify the following:
  • SSR 11-1p applies when a claimant wishes to file a new disability application under the same title and for the same benefit type as a prior claim pending administrative review.
  • However, we follow existing application and protective filing procedures when a claimant files a new application under a different title or for a different benefit type than the pending disability claim.
