Then the Appeals Council will decide to remand your Social Security Disability claim. Back to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). Yet, having new submitted medical evidence. Social Security Disability claims may remand back to the ALJ for further actions it requires. You can find the Rules on Appeals Council Remand in 20 C.F.R. § 404.977.
