Do not resume payments based on an individual’s allegation that he or she is no longer
a fugitive or a parole or probation violator.
Ask the individual to submit documentation from the warrant-issuing agency or court
that shows the date the warrant or court order was satisfied. Resume benefits with
the month after the month the warrant is satisfied (unless the individual remains
ineligible for another reason, e.g., due to imprisonment).
Terms used by courts and law enforcement agencies to describe the disposition of a
warrant may not be consistent among states. For purposes of this subchapter, we use
the term “satisfied” to indicate that the warrant was issued properly and was in force
for a specified period of time before being reconciled.
If there are any questions about if and/or when the warrant or court order was issued
or satisfied, contact the warrant-issuing agency or court to determine the correct
months of suspension. Also contact the agency that issued the warrant when you are
unsure about whether the SSI recipient is the person identified in the warrant or
whether the warrant was proper and cleared or issued in error.
If the agency determines that the warrant was issued in error, resume payments (remove
N25) effective with the first month that N25 was posted. If the individual alleges
that he or she is not the person identified in the warrant and provides evidence indicating
a possible case of identity theft and no court order was issued to rectify the situation,
refer case to OIG for investigation. Include with your referral all information and
documentation available. EVS Codes of "A" Cases - Beneficiary States He/She Does Not
