Social Security has added Initial and Reconsideration cases to its status report in Electronic Records Express (ERE).
Here is a screenshot:
The status report now allows a Representative to quickly determine whether or not they have been associated with a particular client’s disability claim file. Previously, we would have to try to access the claimant’s electronic folder, a more time-consuming process. This new feature allows quick confirmation that you have been associated with the file. It is terrific addition to the ERE system.
02/01/2024 update: A claim at Reconsideration drops off the status report once the Reconsideration determination has been made (and before an appeal from Reconsideration is made). So a Reconsideration claim dropping off the list is your first indication that a new determination has been made.
