It is not necessary to question the possible involvement of a claimant or potential
claimant unless there is an indication (e.g., death certificate, newspaper account)
that the number holder’s (NH) death may have resulted from intentional homicide.
In cases of violent death, do not question involvement if the evidence indicates death
resulted from an accident or suicide.
Absent evidence to the contrary, assume that a claimant younger than age 11 at the
time of the death was not involved in the homicide.
