An individual may have several federal or state warrants in one or more states. Each
warrant must be cleared before the individual may regain eligibility for SSI benefits.
A separate good cause determination must be made for each warrant.
EXAMPLE: A computer match with the New York City Police Department identified Mrs. Black
as a fugitive suspected of felony tax evasion. She was arrested and brought before
a judge for arraignment. When she appeared in court, it was brought to the attention
of the judge that Mrs. Black was also wanted in Texas for felony bank fraud. The State
of Texas is unwilling to pay to have Mrs. Black extradited to face charges in Texas
and the Texas warrant remains open. The New York court released Mrs. Black on $50,000
bail pending her trial.
Mrs. Black remains ineligible to receive SSI until such time as the active warrant
in Texas is satisfied or rescinded or otherwise rendered ineffective, unless good
cause for not satisfying the Texas warrant is established.
