IM-26 March 19, 2004

Recertifications are defined as applications on active cases taken before the end of the current certification. An EU is entitled to uninterrupted benefits if a timely application for recertification is made prior to the 15th day of the last month of certification. Approve the recertification prior to the end of the EU’s current certification period when the EU meets all eligibility requirements and completes the necessary processing steps. This allows the EU an opportunity to participate by its normal issuance cycle the first month of the new certification period.
