Reminder about instructions for preparing claims.

We added instructions to the claims program for Steps 5, 6, and 9. Step 5 has detailed instructions for entering transcripts correctly, including the preliminary hearing.  Steps 6 and 9, the Hours and Expense Worksheets, have hover boxes on each line. The hover boxes appear as a question mark. Placing your cursor over the question mark will reveal a short explanation for that particular line.  Clicking the question mark will open a pop up window that has instructions about what to claim on the line and for writing explanations. The window is divided into two columns. The left column is for appeals and appeals with an associated habeas. The right column is for stand-alone habeas appointments.

We hope these instructions help you to complete claims accurately and reduce the need for unsubmissions. If you have any suggestions or comments about the instructions, please contact Dave Rankin at dkr@adi-sandiego.com or 619-696-0282, ext. 33.
