NL 00705.545 Prisoner Model Rider X—Incarceration and Non-Incarceration Related Impairment—CDB,
Prepare On Par. No. 800-U2
Additional Information About Your Claim
The Social Security law does not allow us to consider any impairment connected with
a person's confinement in a jail, prison, or other penal institution or correctional
facility if that confinement was for conviction of a felony committed after October
19, 1980. This includes an impairment which arose during the confinement. It also
includes the aggravation of an impairment if the aggravation occurred during confinement.
These impairments cannot be considered for the payment of benefits for any month the
person is confined. Where the jurisdiction does not classify any crime as a felony,
we apply these provisions to confinement for conviction of 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 your confinement. You may be entitled to benefits based on
an impairment connected with confinement after your release. You should get in touch
with an Social Security office about filing an application at that time.
