Usually anyone who meets the SDP suspension criteria will already have his or her
benefits suspended under the routine prisoner suspension rules (LAF S7 RFST PRISON).
This is true because the first criteria for SDP suspension is that the individual
has to have been confined in a jail, prison, or other state penal facility pursuant
to a conviction of a criminal offense.
Before reinstating benefits to individuals confined in the District of Columbia or
Virginia whose benefits are suspended under routine prisoner provisions, you should
ask the beneficiary for his or her current mailing and residence address. If the current
mailing or residence address is a mental institution, you must determine if the individual
meets the SDP suspension criteria outlined in GN 02607.350.
If reinstatement of benefits cannot occur because the individual now meets the SDP
suspension criteria, send a Prisoner 2795 FAX to the appropriate PSC requesting they change the RFST code to PREDTR (see GN 02607.995).
The BENEFIT line of the MBR displays an RFST code of PREDTR for all individuals whose
benefits are suspended because they meet the suspension criteria outlined in GN PHI02607.360A.
