The DO may not be able to determine that a felony has been committed in all instances.
However, the history in the medical evidence will ordinarily reveal the circumstances
under which an impairment arose or was aggravated. The Disability Determination Service
(DDS) must be alert to this, and identify any claims not identified by the DO. If
the DDS discovers that the claimant may be confined to a jail, prison, or other penal
institution or correctional facility because of a crime committed after October 19,
1980, and the DO has not annotated Item 11 of the SSA-831-U5, the DDS will contact
the DO to secure the following documentation if a felony was committed:
Date on which felony was committed,
Date of conviction if applicable, and
Date(s) of imprisonment for the felony conviction.
This information will be obtained on a Report of Contact.
