HALLEX
Volume I

Transmittal No. I-2-92

Background

HALLEX Section I-2-4-20 Dismissal at the Claimant's Request is amended to remove the signature requirement for a claimant's request to withdraw a request for hearing. We are making this change to align the request for dismissal procedures with current Social Security signature policy.

I-2-4-20 C. (1) (b) and (c) – We removed the word “signed” in item C. (1) (b) and (c) to reflect current Social Security policy on signature requirements.
