In concurrent cases, each title will have its own pending PUPS record. Complete all
development and update each record separately. We will suspend title XVI benefits on the earliest report of the
confinement. We will suspend title II benefits on the earliest report of the conviction
and confinement. In some cases, you will take the title XVI suspension on one PUPS
record and the title II suspension on a different PUPS record. See the instructions
in GN 02607.600 for development actions required on title II cases. See GN 02607.700 for processing the PUPS alert on title II cases.
Kelly (title XVI and title II beneficiary) goes to jail on 4/2/00 and remains in jail
until he goes to trial. SSA received a report from the Big City Jail on 5/5/00 stating
they have confined our beneficiary. We suspended benefits on the title XVI record
beginning 05/00 and continuing because Kelly was confined in an institution at public
expense throughout the calendar month of 05/00. Kelly went to trial on 6/15/01 and
was not convicted of a crime. The title II PUPS alert was closed as "NO SUSPENSION."
Kelly's title II disability benefits were not suspended because he was not convicted.
NOTE (1): When contacting an institution for information, develop for all information that is needed to resolve both the title II and title XVI issues. Do not contact an institution twice to obtain information for the same individual.
NOTE (2) See GN 02607.790D for information about contacting Federal Bureau of Prisons facilities. For Federal
