NL 00705.540 Prisoner Model Letter W—Felony and Non-Felony Related Impairments—DIB, CDB, DWB
Prepare on Paragraph No. 800-U2
Additional Information About Your Claim
In determining if a person is disabled, we cannot consider any impairment connected
with the commission of a felony after October 19, 1980, for which the person has been
convicted. This includes an impairment that arose during the felony. It also includes
the aggravation of an impairment if the aggravation occurred during the felony. Where
the jurisdiction does not classify any crime as a felony, we apply these provisions
to a crime which can be punished by death or by imprisonment for more than one year.
Because of these provisions, our determination is based only on impairments which
are not connected with the offense you committed.
