Verify the date of death by checking for proof of death on the MBR, SSR, and the NUMIDENT.
For information on use of the NUMIDENT, see GN 00304.100.
If the MBR, SSR, or NUMIDENT show that we have proof of the date of death, you do
not need further development for the date of death.
If the MBR, SSR, or NUMIDENT does not show proof of date of death, develop the death
report following GN 02602.050B. If the beneficiary or recipient is alive, correct the MBR, SSR, and NUMIDENT. Consider
whether to suspend benefits based on the prisoner information before reinstating benefits.
