When a law enforcement officer contacts SSA for information about a claimant or recipient
identified by the officer as a fugitive or a parole or probation violator, search
SSA records to determine whether the individual being sought or reported is an SSI
claimant or recipient.
If the individual is an SSI claimant or recipient, request corroborating evidence
(i.e. warrant, court order or other court decision).from the law enforcement officer.
If he or she does not have corroborating evidence, ask for the name and address of
the agency that has jurisdiction and holds the records or information needed for verification.
Examine the legal documents provided by the law enforcement agency to verify that
the individual is a fugitive felon or a parole or probation violator, as defined in
SI 00530.001. Examples of acceptable evidence are:
Court order or decision, or other document issued by a court;
Copy of an arrest warrant or order; or
Copy of the decision of a court, parole board, or other appropriate agency that finds
that the claimant or recipient has violated a condition of probation or parole.
If the individual is a fugitive felon or parole or probation violator, reflect applicable
months of ineligibility on MSSICS and issue a manual notice. (See SI 00530.430 for processing instructions.) Retain a copy of the evidence in the file.
