I-3-4-50.Vacating a Dismissal of a Request for Review

Last Update: 9/08/05 (Transmittal I-3-36)

The dismissal of a request for review is binding unless the Appeals Council vacates the action. The Appeals Council will vacate its dismissal of a request for review if the Appeals Council receives evidence or documentation which establishes that the request for review should not have been dismissed. If the Appeals Council decides to vacate the dismissal and reinstate the request for review, it will usually incorporate this action in the denial notice, remand order or other action document which is then appropriate.
