If you don't use file status for non-VSAM files the pgm will abend on an I/O error.

If you don't use file status for VSAM files the pgm will NOT abend on an I/O error, but may abend when it tries to use the data that never arrived.

If that happens consider yourself lucky. The last thing you want to happen is have the job terminate successfully, but without the correct data.
