DECISION AND ENTRY
This social security case is presently before the Court on the parties’ Joint Motion

Commissioner pursuant to Sentence Four of Section 205 of the Social Security Act, 42
U.S.C. § 405(g).
Upon remand, the Appeals Council will attempt to locate the file(s) with respect
to Plaintiff’s prior favorable Title II and Title XVI disability determinations, which will
include a search of the father of Plaintiff’s social security number. If the file(s) cannot
be located, the Appeals Council will document the efforts made to find the file(s),
include a record of those efforts in the case file, and issue a decision. If the record does
not provide sufficient support for issuing a decision, then the Appeals Council will
remand the case to the Administrative Law Judge. If the Appeals Council remands the
case, it will instruct the Administrative Law Judge to further develop the record with
regard to Plaintiff’s prior favorable determinations; document the efforts made to obtain
the prior files, and include this information in the record; give Plaintiff an opportunity
for a hearing; and issue a new decision.
