Our objective was to determine whether the (1) Office of Disability Adjudication and Review timely processed its pre-effectuation reviews (PER) of favorable hearing decisions and (2) Office of Operations appropriately terminated benefits for claimants whose cases were denied or dismissed in the process. We also reviewed the costs and benefits of conducting the PERs.
