On behalf of the Social Security Administration, we are notifying you that it appears
a determination will be made that you do not meet the disability requirements of the
law. Therefore, the previous determination awarding benefits based on disability may
have to be revised and your claim denied. You may not be entitled to benefits based
on your present application. You were initially found disabled because of . Our records now show that this condition is based on an impairment connected with
the commission of a felony after October 19, 1980, for which you have subsequently
been convicted. This includes an impairment that arose during the felony. This also
includes the aggravation of an impairment if the aggravation occurred during the felony.
The law does not allow us to consider these impairments in determining if you are
disabled. 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.
(When the disability is based on a combination of impairments, an explanation is given
as to why the remaining impairment(s) does not meet the definition of disability.
When the disability is based solely on the felony-related impairment, this paragraph
is not needed.)
We are giving you the opportunity to present additional statements or evidence that
you want to be considered before a determination is made if you feel that the previous
allowance of your claim is correct and should not be changed to a denial. If you want
to submit statements or evidence, please send it to us within 10 days from receipt
of this notice using the enclosed envelope which requires no postage.
If you do not contact us within 10 days from receipt of this notice, a formal determination
concerning your entitlement to benefits based on disability will be made. It is important
that you let us know within the next 10 days if you want to submit a statement or
evidence even though you need more time to submit it.
When the formal determination is made, you will be notified in writing by the Social
Security Administration. If the allowance of your claim is reversed to a denial, your
benefit payments will stop.
