NL 00705.545 Prisoner Model Rider “X”—Incarceration and Non-Incarceration Related Impairment—CDB, DWB
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.
